ST. LOUIS, MO. - The “Gateway City” of St. Louis played gracious host to thousands of runners at the Rock ‘n’ Roll St. Louis Half Marathon on Sunday. Participants faced warmer-than-usual temperatures with partly cloudy skies in Missouri’s second largest city.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series makes running fun. Each year, more athletes participate in Rock ‘n’ Roll running events than any other running series in the United States.
What started as a simple idea in 1998 – a marathon with bands along the course celebrating each participant – soon transformed the running landscape igniting the second running boom.
