DISCONTINUED AFTER 2018 — Through the years, Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh has become known for its beautiful tree lined course taking runners up and down the hills of historic downtown district.

    We had to take a shuttle to get to this race and we had to get there pretty early, people we huddled around anything that was warm. By the time the race started it was warming up and was very comfortable to run in. The park was a nice place to run the 5k.

    Raleigh was fun, there are a lot of rolling hills, but the weather was as close to perfect for me as I could have asked for. There was a lot of scenery during the race as well. Would run this one again.

    I enjoyed running the downtown streets of Raleigh. There were rolling hills, but nothing too strenuous. As always, Rock and Roll races had bands and music playing at every mile so that it always motivating! We ran down a major street through NC State campus that was nice, as well as some parks. The design on the t-shirts was a little unoriginal, but they were technical shirts so you can always use them. My friend and I did the Remix challenge, so we did the 5K race as well as the half marathon, and got a special guitar medal for doing both. We were notified that this was the last year for doing Rock n Roll Raleigh! But no one seems to know why they are discontinuing it. Maybe participation is weak? Or we had heard Raleigh wanted to limit the number of races in downtown for some reason? Anyway, it’s too bad the race is being discontinued. It was a nice course!

    Even though I was forewarned, the numerous hills in Raleigh is daunting. Up and down, up and down. Hated the ups, loved the downs! Crowd support was great during the hills. Bit lacking in post-race food. Only saw chocolate milk, bananas, pretzels, water and Gatorade.
