West Virginia Marathon and Half Marathon opportunities are limited, but the Washington DC Rock n Roll Marathon is one year away
It was announced today that Toyota is the Official Sponsor of the Rock n Roll Marathon Series through March 2016. In total, Toyota will be sponsoring and setting the pace at over 30 Marathons, Half Marathons, and 5K races, not just throughout the United States, but around the world. West Virginia runners, and any of our friends and neighbors looking for the closest Rock n’ Roll Marathon opportunity should check out the Rock n’ Roll Marathon and Half Marathon in Washington DC. Believe it or not, the 3 and a half hour car ride is the shortest distance to the nearest Rock n’ Roll marathon.
This event actually just finished last week for the 2015 calendar year, but Toyota will be sponsoring the 2016 run in DC. This is actually ideal, because anyone who has been putting off checking this accomplishment off their bucket list will be in a good position to do well by signing up a year in advance. You will have a year to train if you sign up now. You can register here for the Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K.

The Rock n’ Roll Marathon is known for it’s Finish Line Festival featuring a headlining band or performer, there are also many cheer and dance teams as well as various other entertainment dotted along the race course. Teams can apply here to be race supporters and cheerleaders. And, like always, music is the central component to the race, and there will be live bends along the entire course to help you make it to the finish line in style.
“The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series relationship is a great fit for Toyota,” said Ed Laukes, vice president, marketing, performance and guest experience, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “The designation as the official automobile partner of a property that marries sports and music, two of our customers’ passion points, was an easy decision for us. Toyota looks forward to forming a strong partnership with Competitor Group and the Rock ‘n’ Roll series.”
