The Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon is a month away but there are many people working hard to make this event run smoothly for our city. The date for this year is November 17th and it will be a full weekend of activities.
The Sponsor is Competitor Group (CGI) headquartered in San Diego and they sponsor and promote events such as ours in many cities across the world. According to the company press release, "....the average age of our competitors is 38 with 62% of competitors female. We have grown our US based events to 23 markets and have now added Edinburgh and Madrid to our portfolio as we expand into Europe and beyond."
In addition to the many corporate sponsor and vendors, there is a need for volunteers to help throughout the weekend.

The race crew volunteer coordinator can be reached at 1 800 311-1255 or email SanAntonio@RNRRaceCrew.com. And the medical coordinator at email@example.com
There are some additions and changes to the race this year. There is a new race course with the start on Cherry Street at Commerce. And on race day Sunday, there will be a half marathon, a relay race and a mini marathon as well as a bike tour. The mini marathon is a 3 mile distance.
And don't overlook the Health & Fitness Expo where over 60 exhibitors are on display for the two dates of Nov. 15th and 16th. This event is held at the Alamodome and is free and open to the public. So take a look at the health and nutrition information and fitness apparel while getting ready for the race.
The marathon weekend brings a big economic boost to San Antonio with visitors focusing on the downtown activities and a great time to promote our city. And of course, all the live bands and entertainment make a energized atmosphere. Have a safe and healthy race.
