Smash Mouth will get you feeling like an “All-Star” when you cross that finish line! “We’ve got so many hits on this new record it’s ridiculous” says Smash Mouth lead singer Steve Harwell. Harwell oughta know a thing or two about hit songs. Smash Mouth, the band that’s given you such memorable songs as “All-Star,” “Walkin’ on the Sun,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “I’m a Believer,” is back for more season-of-the-sun fun with their vibrant new CD “MAGIC”.

Live Music Throughout!

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each couple kilometers of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this running party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.
