Want to get a head start on those New Year’s resolutions? How about training for Vancouver’s newest – and funkiest – new marathon?
The first ever Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event is coming to Vancouver, Oct. 26. Featuring both a 10K and a half-marathon, the event is equal parts live music party and road race.
Along each mile of the course, bands are on hand to pump up runners. Music ranges from rock and soul to jazz, blues and even punk. Dozens of live music groups in total transform the race into a giant dance party. (In fact, local bands are being recruited shortly, if you’d like to rock out in front of thousands of runners and fans).
