New event debuting at 2013 Rock 'n' Roll Marathon

Runners in Savannah are going to have a new way to "rock out".

The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon announced a new event on Wednesday.

People were able to sign up as teams at Fleet Feet Sports for a new half marathon relay.

Folks will now be able to run a half marathon with a partner. They will run 6.5 miles each and there will be a half way exchange point.

Organizers say this is a great way to get more people involved.

"Not only is Rock 'n' Roll going to increase the numbers from last year anyways. It will add people that don't want to tackle a half marathon or a marathon. Having a team relay is really fun." said Robert Espinoza, Fleet Feet Sports.

20,000 people are expected to participate in November.
