Pasadena is a great race for everyone. There’s a 5k and a half marathon distance. This race is apart of the Conquer Challenge which includes the Santa Monica Classic and LA Marathon. I did the half marathon for the first time this year. It takes you on a route you normally wouldn’t be able to do on your own. You get to finish on the field of the rose bowl which is usually the highlight for most people. The course is stocked well and with the same nutrition/hydration you will find at the Los Angeles Marathon. It’s a great training race for anyone running LA and I highly recommend It.

Top Tips: 
If you’re from around the LA area and dislike running around the rose bowl try to get in a mindset as it’s not the rose bowl because the last 3 miles is around it.
