Bret Michaels Rock 'n' Roll Marathon
"This is the perfect marriage of running and post race entertainment," said Scott Dickey, President of Competitor Group, which owns the series. "Never in the 14-year history of the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series has there been a finish line concert that generated more excitement and as much enthusiasm as Bret Michaels did in Las Vegas. The energy was amazing and after 26.2 or 13.1 miles, to see thousands of runners jumping up and down with their arms in the air was an incredible experience we can't wait to replicate."
Famous for lining race routes with live bands and cheerleaders, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series events are synonymous with massive participant numbers and lively post race concerts. The Dallas event kicks off the four-concert tour headlined by Michaels, along with post-race shows scheduled for Philadelphia (Sept. 18), Los Angeles (Oct. 30) and one other event to be announced at a future date.
Bret Michaels is an avid philanthropist and a strong proponent of a healthy and active lifestyle. He sees the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series as the perfect opportunity to offer his support through charity partnerships, while sharing his message of taking care of your health and living life to the fullest.
"The Rock 'n' Roll Marathons are a great time, they support tremendous causes and the crowd is pumped up from running," said Michaels, who recently headlined December's Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series event in Las Vegas. "You can feel the energy and feel the love; everyone is bonded and united from the race. I'm really looking forward to performing and can't wait to get out there and put on a great show."
