Giveaway: Two entries to the Edinburgh Rock ’n’ Roll Half-marathon
I have two places to give away for the Edinburgh Rock ‘n’ Roll half-marathon on Sunday April 14, 2013. Following a successful first event last year, the concept that combines a running event with live street music and DJs is back again. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series originated in San Diego, America, and has now become a hit in Scotland’s capital.
Event director, Shannon Davis, said: “The inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Edinburgh Half Marathon was a huge success and we’re looking forward to returning to Edinburgh bigger and better in 2013. We expect to attract around 7,000 runners this year with many travelling from all over the world to enjoy the festival-like atmosphere and the exciting race route offering stunning views of the city.”
Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon events attract both competitive runners and people who are looking to have fun while getting fit. It’s a great event to take part in whether you’re looking to achieve a new personal best or just want to run dressed up as your favourite rock icon.
Starting and finishing at Holyrood Park, highlights along the race route include Grassmarket, the Meadows, the Mound, the Queen’s Palace at Holyrood, the Scottish Parliament building, Edinburgh Castle, Portobello Promenade, the Firth of Forth and Arthur’s Seat.
Entry is now open for the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll Edinburgh Half Marathon with registration available at £39. The registration fee also includes an official Brooks Technical t-shirt, a runners bag, course support, finish line snacks, live course and finish line entertainment and one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s highly coveted finishers medals (see pic).
