This is one of my favorite races because it’s always very well organized with lots of aid stations. Packet pickup was at the Pasadena Convention Center. I like their setup. I really liked the tech t-shirt and going by all the vendors. For race day you pay $10 for parking at the rose bowl. It was easy to get to the parking and it starts at the rose bowl which is pretty cool. The course has some hills and I really liked all the volunteers. The Rock N Roll medal is always beautiful. I always have fun at this race and will plan to do it every year.
