Let's rock some races!

Disclosure: As Rock 'n' Bloggers, we have each been provided with a free Tour Pass entry for 3 Rock 'n' Roll events.  We are encouraged to support the race through social media and our blog, but are not required to do so nor are we compensated for this post.  All opinions are our own.

Last year, we received notice that we are Rock 'n' Bloggers again this year for the Rock 'n' Roll race series.  We were delighted with the two races (Dublin Half Marathon and VA Beach Half Marathon) we ran last year from this series and can't wait to plan our races for this year.  The first Rock 'n' Roll race for us is the Rock 'n' Roll DC Half Marathon in two weeks that Christine will be running. We're  still working through the rest of our race plans for the year. With so many great options for locations, it's a very tough decision!

We've really been excited about the Rock 'n' Roll race series for several reasons:
* Awesome race locations - Nice, Nashville, San Antonio, San Diego, and Dublin...need I say more?
* New challenges for completing multiple races in a single location (i.e., the Remix challenges) and completing multiple races in a geographical area (i.e., Southern Charm or Dallas Duo)
* Multiple race distances in locations. Since not every runner has the same goals, this provides the opportunities for families and friends to participate together in a race weekend and complete the right distance for their abilities and interest level.
* Awesome music! It's in the race series title so clearly it's a big part of the events. There are numerous bands on the race courses and there's always a headliner for each event. At Rock 'n' Roll DC, you'll be able to jam to Better than Ezra at the finish line.

We would love to share some savings for a Rock 'n' Roll race with you so feel free to use our code if you are planning to sign up for a race!


Will you be rocking DC this year (or any other city)?

  1. I love how many race options there are for RnR races. While I know that I'll be running Virginia Beach and Philly, I still can't nail down the third. There's just too many great races and locations to choose from!

    1. Yes, these race trips are not cheap at all. I am trying to figure out if I can swing the Chicago race. I think that one could be really fun during the summer when it is too hot to race where I live.
