Runners will celebrate to the sounds of platinum-selling singer and rapper Sean Kingston, next month, when they cross the finish line at the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in St. Petersburg. 

Organizers for the music-themed race announced that Kingston will be headlining the Finish Line Festival, taking place in North Shore Park directly after the Feb. 10 run.

The half marathon will also feature local musicians playing live music along the race route, which will take runners from Tropicana Field to North Shore Park.

About 8,200 runners ran in the 13.1-mile race in 2012 – the first year the event came to St. Petersburg. The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series organizes musical marathons and half marathons in 26 other cities each year.

Advance registration to run in the event costs $110. Visit runrocknroll.competitor.com/st-petersburg for more details.

The race and post-race concerts will be free and open to spectators.
