I really like this race. I did both 2011 and 2012 and loved both my medals with different animal designs. The 10K is pretty tough because you have to go up Elysian Park which is a very high elevation. The view up the hill is beautiful. You get a great view of downtown LA and Dodger Stadium. Going down hill was fun though. There was good water support. Post race was fun with lots of food and vendors. Will definitely do this race again.
