Third Eye Blind to Rock the Post Race Oceanfront Concert
Get set to sink your toes into the sand and raise a celebratory toast to Third Eye Blind at the beachfront Post Race Headliner Concert under the stars! Third Eye Blind, led by founding member Stephan Jenkins, first came together in San Francisco in 1997. Since then, they’ve recorded three best-selling albums, including their debut self-titled album, which spawned well-known hits like “Jumper” and “Semi-Charmed Life.” Part of the Verizon Wireless American Music Festival, this Sunday night concert has been a race weekend highlight for the last 12 years of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon and is the perfect finale to cap off this eventful holiday weekend in 2013. All Half Marathon participants and Relay participants get free entry into all American Music Festival concerts over the weekend (featuring Barenaked Ladies, Daughtry, Smash Mouth and more!) with their race bib and Mini Marathon participants receive free entry into the Sunday night Headliner Concert with their race bib. Additional tickets for the public are now available online at Ticketmaster.com or can be purchased at the Health & Fitness Expo during race weekend.

LIVE. MUSIC. EVERY. MILE.
That’s right, live rock bands every mile along the course. And we don’t mean strumming guitarists on the side of roads or in trees– we’re talking professionally staged and equipped uber-talented local groups eager to push those legs of yours closer to the finish line. Feast your ears on a variety of sounds from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each mile of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this half marathon block party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets.”
