Ratings & Reviews for the Rock n Roll San Antonio Marathon

5 Stars from 1 Reviews

review of 2016 Rock n Roll San Antonio Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars


I really enjoyed the course. There was a good mix of setting; downtown, neighborhoods, parks. Packet pick up was easy, there were plenty of water stations and restrooms available during the race. The unusual weather presented a problem, but as far as the marathon itself everything was great and low stress.

Race Tips

I stayed at a hotel in the downtown area and only had to walk .4 miles to the start. The hotel was great and let us stay parked in their lot during the run. Traffic heading to packet pickup Saturday afternoon was backed up quite a bit. Make plans to come down early on pick up day as well as race day to avoid traffic delays if you're not staying in a hotel downtown.
