2012 Inaugural Hollywood Half Marathon, Hollywood, CA. Event date: April 7, 2012

I somehow stumbled across a website for the 2012 Inaugural Hollywood Half Marathon in Hollywood, CA.

Event date:  April 7, 2012

Currently, there isn't a whole lot of information on the website regarding the event.  The website links to seem to reveal a bit more, such as the following:


*Commemorative Tech T-shirts for all participants
*Goodie Bag & Refreshments from fitness vendors
*Chip Timing for fast & accurate results
*Post Race Party/Awards Ceremony In The Park
*Free Limo Party Bus Shuttles To & From Griffith Park
*Movie Premiere Style Photo Backdrop with Red Carpet


*Awesome (Oscar Style) Finishers Trophies
*Prize money for Top 3 Overall Male & Female Finishers


*Scenic and Flat 13.1 Race Course TBD
*Run With The Stars Along Hollywood Blvd.
*Course Map:
(Note:  Clicking on the course map currently does not go anywhere.)


Registration fees are Non-Refundable and Non-Transferable.

IMHO, inaugural events are always risky because the event kinks may or may not be worked out; sponsors may or may not come on board, etc.  On the extreme end of things, I have seen advertising for inaugural events which just never materialized.

One of my friends told me she was going to sign up for the 2012 Inaugural Hollywood Half Marathon.  I am a bit more cautious and will take a wait and see on it.  Currently, I am just putting this out there, so you may want to keep an eye on it.

Please click here for the event's website.

Good luck!!!
