Become a Heavy Medal Groupie with the Rock n' Roll Race Series

September 08, 2011


After completing my first half marathon, I was hooked. Mostly because of the medal. I guess as a millenial and my incessant need to be rewarded, being driven by the shiny, and sometimes sparkly, hardware isn't a huge surprise. When I was doing my race re-cap for the Rock n' Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon, I came across something that made me giddy with excitement and had me thinking about registering for every Rock n' Roll race scheduled for the rest of the year. In 2011, runners that complete two or more races in the Rock n' Roll Marathon series within the calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31) will qualify for its heavy medal bling. You got it!
