The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series started as a single race in 1998 and is now the World's Largest Running Series that has grown to include more than 500,000 runners taking part in a global tour of 31 events in 2014. Organized by Competitor Group, the series was the first to combine a road race, tourist destination, recreational running, charity fundraising and musical entertainment into a single event that celebrates health and wellness.

The events have become a fundraising powerhouse for charities who have developed endurance-training programs, such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the ASPCA and Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. Since the Series started in 1998, charities have collectively raised funds in excess of $296 million (net) through the events.
