The Rock ‘n’ Roll Series adds another milestone to its enduring collection of road running events as it hits Manila roads on June 19, marking the first time that the series known for lining up race routes with live bands, cheer teams and themed water stations will be staged in Southeast Asia (SEA).

The City of Manila provides exciting opportunities for both our runners and our brand. We are proud that we can be a part of showcasing and highlighting what the city has to offer the runners and their support crews who travel to the area.”
