Run With Us in 2018

For over 20 years, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has made running fun by infusing each course with live bands, cheer teams and more. In 2018, the Michelob Ultra Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon is celebrating 13 years running with more music, runner support, and community engagement every step of the way. This event is known for being California’s fastest half marathon and for having one of the most spirited courses in the entire series. The event features two days of running with a Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and KiDS ROCK, giving runners the chance to take on the Remix Challenge and earn three medals during the race weekend. We invite you, your friends and family to run with us in 2018!
