PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A pop star will greet runners at the finish line of a local half marathon at Waterfront Park.

Organizers of the Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon announced Wednesday that Andy Grammer will be the event's headlining act.

Grammer's recent hits include Keep Your Head Up and Fine By Me, both of which reached the top 10 on adult pop radio charts and were certified gold.

The second-annual race kicks of the Portland Rose Festival on Sunday, May 19. The course is lined with entertainment and music.

This year will feature a redesigned 13.1-mile course that starts on Naito Parkway, goes along the waterfront and crosses the Hawthorne Bridge into East Portland.
