Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Half Marathon Performers Announced

Portland is set to ROCK as the first Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Half Marathon hits the streets on Sunday, May 20 — with more than 20 bands adding rhythm to the beat of 14,000 runners racing through Portland. This inaugural race will treat participants to parts of Portland no previous race has explored, including the opportunity to cross the iconic Hawthorne Bridge as they head into East Portland to enjoy beautiful Portland locations like Laurelhurst Park, Lloyd Boulevard and the downtown waterfront.

This race both starts and finishes in downtown Portland at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. There the ‘Finish Line Festival’ will welcome both runners and spectators into the same footprint as Rose Festival’s CityFair, where everyone can attend the Finish Line Headliner Concert, featuring performances by headliner Kevin Rudolf, plus Chris Rene and Hit Machine.

Music begins at 8:00 a.m. and continues until 12:30 p.m. with a performance located on each mile of the race route! To see the full list of performers, click the following link.
