New changes and early entry alert for Texas' premier running event
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The 2009 Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon & ˝ Marathon, set for Sunday, November 15, is announcing some exciting changes for the second showing of the event that will take place in south Texas this fall.
Responding the participant requests, race organizers are providing all participants with a technical t-shirt, courtesy of Sugoi. Additionally, race officials are looking at ways to enhance the post-race experience by expanding the finish line fiesta and creating a more festive environment inside the Alamodome with live music and vendors on the afternoon of the race.
"After a successful inaugural event we are looking at ways to further improve the participant experience," said Lucy Diaz, Event Manager. "We are changing the participant t-shirt from a cotton t-shirt to a Sugoi technical t-shirt, and are exploring ways to provide participants with even more live music throughout race weekend."
"We are planting the seed to register early after last year's sell out," added Diaz. "With many of the event's training programs beginning in the next few months, now is the time to make the commitment and lock in your spot at the best rate."
Many training resources are available for Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio participants, and vary from a free online training program, provided by the New Balance ActiveTrainer, to a national charity training program like Team In Training, to a variety of local and regional training groups hosted by specialty running stores.
The 2008 first-year event had a combined 24,733 finishers, making it the 4th largest marathon / half-marathon combo in the world. For more information about the Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio or to register, visit www.rnrsa.com or call (800) 311-1255.
