(KTVI)-The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, ½ Marathon, and 5K are this weekend. Why Rock ‘n’ Roll? Musicians and bands are posted every mile or so along the route to entertain and inspire runners. The race is followed by a big concert and party.
The Quinn Family Foundation is once again the title sponsor of the event’s St. Louis stop. In effort to expand charitable benefits of the races, the Foundation has established Rungevity, a turnkey charity-racing program to benefit selected St. Louis charities in a unique way.
Runners get others to sponsor their run to raise money for Rungevity's charity partners. This year it’s Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital and Team Activities for Special Kids (TASK). Participants joining the Rungevity charity team enjoy premium training activities and VIP access to race-weekend events, including a Sunday night concert featuring Weezer with special guest Sleeper Agent.
