The Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series has announced that Bellevue, Washington will host the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Washington on September 3–4, 2022, with a half marathon, 5K race and KiDSROCK event replacing Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle.
With additional details announced at a future date, the event will be headquartered in the Bellevue Downtown Park & Bellevue Collection. Participants previously registered for Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Seattle will be contacted with further details.
“Following a three-year hiatus, we’re excited to once again bring the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series back to the Pacific Northwest,” said Elizabeth O’Brien, managing director of North America for The Ironman Group, owners of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series. “Runners and walkers alike can expect action-packed, music-filled race days with scenic views.”
Bellevue is located on Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish and at the doorstep of the Cascade Mountains. Bellevue is also known as the City in a Park for its almost 100 community parks along with its hiking trails, eclectic dining, art galleries and nightlife.
“Bellevue’s hospitality industry is excited to create an unforgettable experience for the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Series Washington,” said Brad Jones, executive director of Visit Bellevue. “Bellevue is rooted in the spirit of the Pacific Northwest; its natural beauty and industry have much to offer the participants.
