WATCH: Sky 12 flies over Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon

Half-marathon and marathon will be on Sunday morning

SAN ANTONIO – Sky 12 provides a bird’s eye view of the 2023 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.

The half-marathon and marathon began on Sunday morning. The time limit for the half-marathon was four hours, and the time limit for the marathon was seven hours.


Similar to last year, the start line for the half-marathon and marathon was at City Hall on South Flores Street between West Commerce and Dolorsa. Runners and walkers headed up north to Broadway and Brackenridge Park.

At mile five, both races entered Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston and went through the base for three miles.

The half-marathon course then went back downtown, while the marathon course went to the East and Southeast Sides before going back west to downtown.

Both races ended in front of the UTSA downtown campus.

Street closures

Dozens of streets along the 5K, 10K, marathon and half-marathon courses will be closed on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

On Sunday, the majority of closures will be in place between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Streets will reopen on a rolling basis, as soon as the last participant has passed.

Race officials are encouraging people to download the free navigation app, Waze that will re-route navigation plans and help drivers automatically avoid the closures during race weekend.
