    Over 16,000 people entered the Rock 'n' Roll Half-Marathon race in downtown San Jose Sunday.

    Thousands of runners took over downtown San Jose for the annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon.

    Local bands and cheerleaders lined the race course. Themed water stations were there too.

    A Portland man won in 1 hour, 2 minutes, while a woman from Vancouver, Canada was the first female to cross the line.

    Over 16,000 people entered, a record for the race.

    "I'm not kidding you...It brings the community together, it raises money for a great cause... and this is the community event," racer Adam Duran said. "It's incredible. Incredible weather, incredible people."

    The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series has raised nearly $300 million for charity since it started in 1998.
