As you may have heard by now, a Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon is coming to Vancouver, along with a 10K event on October 26, 2014! The race will be only the second Canadian R ‘n’ R event, along with the Montreal marathon and half-marathon put on by the series. The Vancouver 10K event will be co-hosted by the Lion’s Gate Road Runners.
R ‘n’ R events are well-known for their combination of running with entertainment. The races end with a concert at the finish line, along with other bands every mile of the course.
While the event isn’t until next fall, rregistration opens tomorrow (November 15, 2013). For the first 500 half marathon entrants, the cost is only $65, which is a pretty good deal. The regular price is $80. I’m looking to be one of the first 500—who’s going to Rock Vancouver with me!?!
