2011 Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon: New Course. Event date: October 30, 2011

I recently flipped thru the June 2011 issue of Competitor and missed the small caption in an ad for the Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon, but one of my friends caught it and mentioned that this year's event will feature a new course.

I ran in the 2010 Inaugural Rock 'n' Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon, and it was a point to point course, requiring all participants to either board shuttles to the start or be dropped off near the start and then finishing downtown.

The ad says, "For 2011, new course:  Start and Finish downtown at L.A. Live."

This certainly puts a spin on the event for those who ran it in 2010.

Currently, a new course map has yet to be posted on the official event website.

Those interested in the event may want to stay tuned.

Happy running!!!


  1. THANK GAWD!!!! I hated last year's course!

  2. @Carla - Thanks for reading and commenting. I wasn't high on last year's RnR LA 1/2 course. It felt like hills, hills and more hills.
