Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in downtown Raleigh, N.C. on April13, 2014. 12,500 runners made it to the capital city for a day of music and running. Paul Himberger won the men's marathon with a time of 2:38:57 and Heidi Bretscher won the women's marathon with 2:49:46. Both runners from Durham, N.C. (Chris Baird / WRAL Contributor).

The 2015 Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and Half Marathon will start on South Salisbury Street at West Davie Street in downtown Raleigh and finish on Fayetteville Street at East Davie Street.

Runners wind east through Chavis Park and then north to Clark Avenue before the full marathon and half marathon routes diverge. Half marathoners make the turn at Hillborough Street, circling back to the south through Pullen Park and returning to the finish line. The full marathon continues east to Meredith College before a leg that travels south to Lake Johnson and includes the off-road Dixie Trail. Marathoners finish up through Centennial Campus and back to downtown.

Law enforcement will be stationed along the route at the intersections designated to allow traffic to cross when it is safe for the runners.

    Too bad for all the business. They should run these marathons on the greenways and parks so as not to inconvenience all the business and taxpayers.
