The Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series will make its way to the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 2022, following a two-year wait. The inaugural edition of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Atlantic City is scheduled to take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 14-15, 2022, with distances including half marathon and 5K.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series will kick off the summer by treating thousands of participants and active lifestyle enthusiasts to a one-of-a-kind race experience that highlights Atlantic City’s iconic resorts and beautiful coastal communities.
“We are excited to finally have the chance to add Atlantic City into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series,” said Elizabeth O’Brien, Managing Director for North America at The IRONMAN Group owners of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series.
“After a long wait, we are proud that we can be a part of showcasing and highlighting what Atlantic City has to offer the thousands of runners, walkers and active lifestyle enthusiasts as well as their support crews who travel to the area.
O’Brien continued, “This new event will feature the beach on one side and a party on the other, making the Atlantic City Boardwalk the perfect venue for the newest Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series event. We can’t wait to see participants hit the streets of Atlantic City this coming May.”
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Atlantic City event weekend will feature a half marathon along with a 5K. Participants will be able to take on the ‘Remix Challenge’ by running on both Saturday and Sunday to earn the Remix Challenge medal in addition to each race’s finisher medals.
Race week will kick-off on Friday, May 13 when the Health and Fitness Expo opens to the public, featuring some of the latest products and trends in the running industry. The 5K will be on Saturday, May 14, and the half marathon on Sunday, May 15.
After starting out at Bader Field, race participants will experience the shore towns of Ventnor before they eventually make their way to the Boardwalk for the final six miles.
‘Playing to the rich musical history of New Jersey, the musically themed event will amp up the on-course bands and DJs for competitors to enjoy as they race their way to a finish line after-party festival.’
Located on New Jersey’s Atlantic coast, Atlantic City is a prime destination and accessible by many, with the world-renowned Atlantic City Boardwalk situated on the coastline. This New Jersey staple features shops, bars, and casinos, offering a ‘lively experience with a world-class view’.
Other activities include surfing and kayaking, giving both spectators and participants the chance to embrace the atmosphere of the Atlantic City shoreline.
