About The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose
The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon is an exhilarating race that takes runners through the beautiful city of San Jose, California. On 30 September 2023, the streets will come alive with the energy and excitement of this unique race.
The course for this half marathon is both scenic and challenging. Runners will make their way from Santa Clara Street to Taylor Street in downtown San Jose before heading over to Almaden Expressway and onto Coleman Avenue, where they will turn back towards downtown. Along the way they’ll pass iconic sites like The Tech Museum of Innovation, Plaza de Cesar Chavez Park, and more. There’s also plenty of hills along the route that offer a great challenge for experienced runners looking to push themselves past their limits.
September in San Jose tends to be mild with temperatures usually ranging between 55-85°F (13-29°C). Runners can expect sunny skies with occasional breezes that provide just enough cooling relief during those final miles of the race. In addition to getting some fresh air while running outdoors on such gorgeous days, participants get treated to live music throughout their journey from talented local bands at various points along the route – making it perfect for anyone who enjoys a good beat!
The crowds are always enthusiastic at Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon too; friends, family members and fans line up all along Almaden Boulevard cheering on every runner as if it were a rock concert rather than road race! It really helps build up motivation levels during those tough last few miles when you know there are people out there rooting for you no matter what your speed or skill level may be. At each mile marker water stations featuring volunteers help keep everyone hydrated while providing much needed encouragement as well – making this one unforgettable event!
