Rock and Roll Marathon Denver announces new course for 2014

The Rock and Roll Marathon series returns to Denver for the fifth time this October. Today, organizers announced a new route with a much larger footprint and a few new neighborhoods.

Instead of a quick loop through downtown before a tangle out by City Park, this year's race will head into the Highlands and west all the way to Sloan's Lake. It will still also feature loops around City Lake Park and Washington Park before finishing down the hill on 14th Avenue into Civic Center Park. A full, enlargeable map is below.

Last year's lineup featured thirty Denver bands playing along the course and at a finish line festival, with headliner Atlas Genius on a main stage in Civic Center Park. Those elements will return this year. The headliner has yet to be announced, and applications for locals open this month.
