Review

This race was on the cover of Raceplace magazine and touted as “best 5K in Los Angeles” by LA sports and fitness magazine so must have some good things going for it and indeed they were right. This is one of the best 5Ks in LA. My vote for best gift bag and best run shirt (i think it’s a dry fit nike or kswiss shirt) so worth the price of admission just to get the shirt! Super organized and a lot of fun!

probably over 4,000 people so if you are going to this make sure you give yourself enough time to park as you know the West LA area is always pretty hard to find parking. They did have a bus shuttle for people as well.

They also have THE BEST gift bags after plus t-shirts and medals and timing for a great low price! If you have not been to this event yet, you will want to keep the date open! For those that have been to this event, you know what I am talking about =) Halloween weekend on October 28th! I’m wearing a costume! Who is with me?!
