I was very disappointed in the race. I have not read anyone else's thoughts. But when I had no water or electrolytes I was really disappointed. Going back to our parking structure was another debacle. I hope this race can work out its wrinkles. Sounds like it would be fine..if better organized.
After 40 half marathons, I have a strong opinion about races...I didn't like this one at all. 6 AM start, terribly crowded expo, PAID parking TWICE!!, ugly course, no cups, bad hill, no shuttles, volunteers didn't know what was going on, did I mention UGLY COURSE?? Never again.
We learned a lot in year one (2012) so year 2 will be executed better and even more exciting than the first. See you all soon!
I loved the race, yes there were some problems that can be fixed next year, yes "The Hill" was crazy hard, but it's a half marathon!! I found the course challenging. It was the most fun I've had running a half marathon.
One of my favorite races in Los Angeles, well organized and the race director interacts with runners and listens to what they say. I've already signed up to 2014. The course is a nice mixture of flats and hills. I set a personal best yesterday and look forward to bettering that next year. Superman gave me my medal at the end
Love this event. I ran the first year and it was a hot mess, I was very hesitant to run again. I am so glad I did it is one of the best events I have done.
