Review of Griffith Park Trail Half Marathon by Kirk

Posted by: on November, 30 2012

For any runner who has a so-called bucket list of events that they want to do someday, they had better make sure that AT LEAST one of Keira Henninger’s races is on that list! The runner is so well taken care of that there is absolutely nothing lacking…and certainly no lack of hills during the Griffith Park 1/2 Marathon! Everything aspect of this and its companion 10K were the epitome of the pampered experience, and it is clearly obvious that the Race Director is concerned about far more than collecting race entry fees. She cares about each and every runner, and she is a consumnate professional with the desire to provide the highest value and the best experience. I was impressed by not just the RD, but also the experience level of the eager volunteers, the care in course-marking, the incredible aid stations, the unparalleled race swag, and the overwhelming knowledge that I was being well cared for. If you are looking for the gold standard, look no further; this is where it’s at.
