Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon
The festive full marathon course takes you by historic downtown San Antonio, the Alamo, Trinity University and the San Antonio Zoo. Live entertainment propells you along the course and helps you find that dream rhythm. Celebrate your finish with a festival, beer garden and headliner concert! Choose from the full or half marathon distance. The Rock 'n' Roll weekend in San Antonio also includes a 5K and 10K run. This racous running festival is San Antonio's biggest running event of the year, not to be missed!
The first half of the Marathon course is quite enjoyable. The scenery includes the historic downtown, The Alamo, by the Zoo, Trinity University, and some great neighborhoods. Expect some hills in mile 6. The latter part of the course runs along a non descript creek on a concrete trail, returning to the city streets to finish. The first half of the marathon course is scenic with ample spectator support, but the crowd thins over the second half. Consider buddying up with fellow runners for support. Aid stations are frequent and well stocked.
