Just saw on their website that the DC Marathon is going Rock 'n Roll. Looks like there is an entire Rock 'n Roll running series. I've never heard of them. Does anyone have any experience with their races? Just wondering if this good/bad for the race? Route not posted yet. Thanks
I expected the National Marathon/Half to do something like this. I heard it was losing money and as disorganized as it was this past year, something had to happen. (When a guy holding up 3 fingers is the "Mile 3" marker, you know there are issues). I've heard of the Rock n' Roll series and they seem to be buying up races all over the place, but I haven't had any experience with their events.
Hopefully, it'll be well run next year. The half is really a great race and course.
I've run RnR Half in Va Beach a couple of times and it was well run and professional organized. Perhaps my only issue were the bands every mile, but the masses enjoyed them. They typically put on a real nice post-race event too. I believe that this is a positive direction however race entry will probably go up since the organizers are a for-profit company.
if they could just have mile markers, i'd be happy.
No bands needed but the Howard U. Marching Band!
