Review of Southern California Half Marathon & 5K by HB Runner

Posted by: on December, 22 2011

The half marathon is well organized. No problems with the registration process. “Atmosphere” is average for a race this size. The course is all over the place. Through streets, bike paths, and I think I even ran through someone’s backyard! Must’ve been a shortcut… The timing of the race is what I like best. It’s a great way to start off the New Year and get things started right. It also keeps you in check from eating too much over the holidays.
