Review of Hollywood Half Marathon by huskydon

Posted by: on April, 10 2012

– Running through CityWalk, Hollywood Blvd
– many runners dressed up, friendly fun vibe during the race
– taking the limo shuttle after the race
– massage after the race
– race director worked hard to communicate pre-race via Facebook
– low race fee if you registered early
– Saturday raceday (Sunday’s are busy for me)

– hill at the end makes the course maybe too difficult for many
– ran out of cups during the race
– no race day race packet pick-up
– cost of race day parking (I bought a parking pass on the Internet before the race for $10)

Overall, a very decent first time race. I would come back again for sure if I could get a good price next year. Kudos to race director Ken for organizing this massive event.
