Review of Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run/Walk by

Posted by: on May, 29 2013

Traffic getting into the parking areas – had to pay for parking. Far walk to pick up shirts & bibs, not time to walk back to the car to drop off shirts before the race began. Lots of festive runners in Christmas apparel. Basic 10k route. Enjoyed running along the boardwalk, except for all the bums hassling the runners along the way, and didn’t appreciate the bum who blew pot smoke in my face 🙁 Appreciated the post race food.
