Featuring three days of free concerts on the beach, 13.1 miles of live bands and a spectacular boardwalk finish, it's no wonder why over 20,000 runners and walkers participate in the Rock 'n' Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon. Warm ocean breezes, clean sandy beaches and rolling surf provide a stunning backdrop to this Labor Day Weekend extravaganza. The half marathon course is as flat and festive as it comes - perfect for runners and walkers of all ability levels.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series makes running fun. Each year, more athletes participate in Rock ‘n’ Roll running events than any other running series in the United States.
What started as a simple idea in 1998 – a marathon with bands along the course celebrating each participant – soon transformed the running landscape igniting the second running boom.
