Meet Scott Dvorak. Scott Dvorak is a former elite runner, who with Scott Hichmann, founded the Charlotte Running Company in 2000. Scott also has an event company and is a keen observer of both the sport and industry.

Each year, at the Running Event, I would catch up with Scott Dvorak and ask him about the 1) top running shoes in his market, 2) top service by brands, and his thoughts on running in the past year.

Scott Dvorak is the first commissioner of the 361 USA Retailers Cup. We met with Scott at the 2018 TRE event to speak about the 361 USA Retailers Cup, and how it benefits the staffs of local running stores. The Shoe Addicts shot this video of Scott Dvorak as I asked him about the importance of ther 361 Retailers Cup.

Post-race Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series will take place following the race on Sunday, April 7 at Ghirardelli Square at 9:30 a.m. - TAMPA, Fla./SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 18, 2019) – The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series® has announced exciting new course enhancements along with this year’s headline band for the 2019 United Airlines Rock ’n’ Roll® Half Marathon San Francisco. On Sunday, April 7, runners will be treated to a brand-new start line experience with more pre-race music, lights, and informational experience before heading out of Pier 35 to cross start line on The Embarcadero. The energetic Yacht Rock band, Mustache Harbor will take to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series Stage to close out a fun-filled weekend of running and music. The concert will be free and open to the public.

 This year’s start line will move back approximately 1,500 feet to just outside Pier 35 on The Embarcadero, which will allow for an enhanced pre-race kick-off with several all-new features for 2019.

The start line arch will also be set up in advance of the Health & Fitness Expo, giving runners an early look of how their race will begin.
 
Mustache Harbor has a simple mission: to build a mustache army and create a Soft Rock Explosion the likes of which has not been seen since Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Ace, Kenny Loggins and The Little River Band ruled the airwaves and created AM Gold. This local San Francisco Yacht Rock band welcomes runners and spectators to come dance, sing and party with them at the finish line!
 
After runners cross the finish line, they will be treated to the sounds of Mustache Harbor at the finish line festival located on Beach Street in front of the Hyde St. Trolley station across from the Aquatic Park. Continuing a strong tradition of Bringing the Fun to the Run™ with great music at the core, the post-race concert will begin at 9:30 a.m. to celebrate a day of running, music and community.
 
The musically themed United Airlines Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon San Francisco will begin at 6:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 7. From the start line at Pier 35 to the Golden Gate Bridge, race participants will enjoy the best of San Francisco. This boutique bucket list race features a show-stopping course that will treat runners to picturesque views of the San Francisco Bay and is jam packed with music and entertainment from start to finish.
 
Race weekend kicks off with the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, April 5 from 3 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Pier 35. The expo will showcase vendors featuring the latest in running gear, nutrition and training.
