Review of Los Angeles Marathon by

Posted by: on March, 18 2013

This was my first time running the LA Marathon and I was pleasantly surprised! The race expo was nicely laid out with plenty of freebies and deals( let’s be homest we love the freebies!). Race morning was much quicker than I ever expected, the runner dropoff was easily accesible and well run. The corrals were a bit rough and a wave start would have allowed for a much less congested course though. The spectators and race support were fantastic! Myself and the other running Elvi had a great time singing and cheering on our fellow runners with their help! The biggest downfall for the race was the mile long finish line stroll. It felt like a way to torment the already suffering finishers. I would definitely run this race again in the future.
