Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon

Welcome to the Rock 'n' Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon! Race events include our Half Marathon, 2 Person Half Marathon Relay, Mini Marathon & 5K. The race kicks-off at The Virginia Beach Convention Center and participants will cross the finish line on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk.

Also, for two days, over 60 exhibitors will offer free samples, showcase the latest in running gear, sports apparel, health & nutritional information and much more. Pick up some last-minute race essentials before race day and be sure to visit the Brooks Official Merchandise Store. All runners must visit the expo to pick up their own race number, gear bag and t-shirt.

Over 20,000 runners descend on the Virginia Beach oceanfront for this 13.1-mile race. Bands along the race course help to motivate runners to cross the finish line!  With a course that’s flat, fast, and fun, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon has become a “must run” event for thousands of racers. A post-race concert with a national recording act on the 5th Street Main Stage tops off the fun-filled day! There is an entry fee for the race and the post-race concert is a ticketed event.
