The fourth annual Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon is Sunday. While that's probably news that gets your heart racing if you're a jock, for us fat, lazy, non-athletic, beer-guzzling blokes, eyes glaze over, if you know what I mean. Worse, it starts at the crack of dawn -- well, 7 a.m., close enough if you're out drinking all night. Right. Sports, waking up early -- um, yeah, what about this is this rock and roll again, exactly? Oh yeah. The music. Turns out, there's a rock and roll component to this foot race. Organizers enlisted Atlas Genius (due on the mainstage from 10:45 - 12 p.m.), plus more than thirty local bands to perform along the route. Keep reading for a course map and a complete rudnown of who's playing where and when.
