Review of Rose Bowl Half Marathon by HB Runner

Posted by: on January, 10 2012

Good, not great was my experience with this race. As anyone knows that has been to an event at the Rose Bowl, parking is a pain. Best to get there early and bring your pre-race meal. The course is a little different than others. It has some trail running, which I prefer, as it winds through the golf course and park. There are also some hills that can be challenging with a race of this distance, so be prepared. The best part of the race is the finish. Pretty cool to have the finish line insde the Rose Bowl. But then you’re fighting traffic again on your way out. Without the problems of getting to and from the event, this race would be an “A” for me. I will likely do it again this year…
