Bands Needed to ‘Rock’ the Rock Hall Half Marathon

Get your band on the road to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The Rock Hall Half Marathon has issued a call for musicians to entertain the thousands of runners, walkers and spectators along the 13.1-mile course Sunday, Aug. 20. The race — now in its third year — starts and ends at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.

Selected bands and DJs will receive the opportunity to showcase their talent while powering runners to the finish line. We’re looking for acts that rock hard enough to carry every racer to a personal best time.

Acts chosen to play the Rock Hall Half Marathon will receive:

  • Publicity through the Rock Hall Half Marathon website and social media channels
  • Rock Hall Half Marathon T-shirts for up to two band members
  • Rock Hall-themed pint glasses for up to two band members
  • Access to a generator and 10x10 pop-up tent at course location

To apply, visit and fill out the registration form. Contact for additional information.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame serves as title sponsor of the race, which is presented by Greater Cleveland XC and Second Sole with the generous support of a growing list of community sponsors.

The event includes a half marathon and half marathon relay in addition to a 10K and 5K, offering runners multiple distance options on a loop course that highlights downtown, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens and the lakefront. Register today by visiting
