Two new races and an interactive tool for runners are new for 2015.
The 2015 Rock ‘n’ Roll series schedule includes new races in New York and Mexico, along with a new tool for runners to keep pace with their season plans.
Half marathons in Mexico City (March 15) and Brooklyn (October) were added to the schedule, while #MyRnRTour was launched. The latter is an interactive race-calendar planning tool that helps runners manage their 2015 Rock ‘n’ Roll race schedule.
#MyRnRTour launches on Nov. 20 and it will offer savings on 2015 race entry fees for 24 hours after it is made available.
“Runners are passionate about their sport and we are thrilled to offer not only savings for runners, but a new tool that will help them schedule upcoming races,” said Keith Kendrick, Chief Marketing Officer of Competitor Group. “This is a great time for new runners to commit to a race, as we offer a variety of distances and events, and for experienced athletes to plan their 2015 schedule.”
The race in Mexico City will be the first Rock ‘n’ Roll event held in the United States’ southern neighbor. Overall, 23 destinations in North America are on the season schedule, along with four stops in Europe—Madrid, Spain; Liverpool, England; Dublin, Ireland; and Lisbon, Portugal.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn actually began in 2011 as a 10K in Central Park. After a one-year hiatus, the race will return and expand to 13.1 miles next year. More than 20,000 runners are expected. The exact date and the course will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We are working with the City of New York to bring a Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon to Brooklyn in October of 2015,” said Josh Furlow, Executive Vice-President of Global Events for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. “Brooklyn has a tremendous running community and has become a popular destination for travelers from around the world. We look forward to providing an unmatched running experience to athletes of all abilities with our first half-marathon in New York City.”
