Review of Hollywood Half Marathon by

Posted by: on April, 9 2014

Nice – tshirt, medal and challenge medal, lots of water stops, starting @ Hollywood/Highland and finishing @ Hollywood/Vine.

Not so nice – the expo is inconvienently located and not open late enough. If your packet pickup is only on weekdays, leave it open one evening until 9pm. 6am start is too early. Really hard to park around this race. The course was nothing spectacular except for the start and finish. Just running down Hollywood/Sunset and branching off on to side streets. A circuit around Hollywood would be much better. Need better security at the corral entrances. I was weaving around walkers already in the first half mile.
