    Is it possible to rank something that does not even exist?  Nice job!  This was supposed to be my first 1/2 marathon and my friend came all the way down from LA to run it with me.  There was nothing at Balboa Park and we even spoke to a park ranger to assured us that no such event was taking place there today.  I will be demanding a full refund from this horrible experience.  I would have entered zero stars but the website forces me to enter some sort of rating.

    Very disappointing.  This was to be my first half marathon.  After 5 calls to Active over the past 5 weeks I still couldn't get any information.  Have we been scammed?  It would seem that Active would verify the legitimacy of events posted on their website and would have shown interest in resolving this issue.  VERY disappointed!

    Lame. I drove all he way to Balboa park from LA to run for the kids. How disappointing after showing up to find no event being held. you have failed on a major level here to ensure that what you put on your website is a real activity. I will be demanding my money back.
