With its mostly fast and flat course — the elevation for the race starts at about 90 feet above sea level and never gets higher than about 110 feet above sea level during the race — the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Jose Half Marathon has become a favorite for both California-based runners looking to record personal bests as well as participants from around the country who come out for the live music and entertainment of this energetic big-city race along the route. Highlights include stretches past San Jose’s Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, Municipal Rose Garden, and a run around downtown San Jose.
