Rock n Roll Marathon Series Virtual and Fun Run

When a major national race series announces a fun run through multiple cities in the US along with a virtual  fun run, a race shirt (for virtual runners: only the first 2,500 entrants receive a shirt) and a spot to be entered to win an entry to Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas in 2014.....one can only think, what is the cost and how do I sign up?

It's FREE & easy!

That's right, I said free. Rock n Roll Marathon series is hosting the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Kick Off 5K on April 2nd.

There are two different ways to participate in this event, a city hosted run and a virtual run.

If you are not located in one of the above cities (like myself), there is no need to be sad. There is a virtual run option and you will receive a shirt while supplies last - so what are you waiting for?! The Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Kick Off 5K Virtual Run is available to anyone, anywhere. You can run/walk, on a road, on trail or even on a treadmill. Even better? This can take place any time between March 18 – April 2. Here are the details:
(PS Tampa, I have already put out the plea to have us as a hosted city in 2015 for this event - with your support by commenting on this post, we have a better chance of this being possible).

  1. You must reserve your spot by clicking here and choosing VIRTUAL RUN
  2. Run 5K/3.1 miles on a road, trail, track, or treadmill
  3. Submit Proof of your 5K run through the link that will be emailed out to you after you reserve your spot (Proof may come in the form of a photo or screen shot of your watch, phone app, or treadmill clock)
  4. You will be entered to win an entry to Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas in 2014*
  5. Receive your limited edition Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas promo tee**
CONTEST DEETS
One entry will be given via raffle at each Hosted Run and selected by random for all Virtual Run entrants. All winners will be notified on or before April 3. **Limited to first 2,500 participants. All shirts will be mailed 2- 4 weeks after the event.
