Rock 'n' Roll Marathon + Expo

-

The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon is back! With 20,000+ runners and 100,000 spectators, MTS is encouraging attendees to take the Trolley to avoid congestion.

Head to the San Diego Convention Center (using the Green Line) to check out the Health and Fitness Expo on Friday and Saturday. Several viewing locations will be accessible and close to Trolley stations along the both marathon courses.
