Are you still looking for ways to celebrate Halloween? If you’re in town taking advantage of hotel specials in Hollywood, you can take part in the Rock’n’Roll Marathon Series in downtown Los Angeles! There may still be spots available at the Health and Fitness Expo from October 26-27. The race also needs spectators to watch as runners travel 13.1 miles from L.A. Live to Exposition Boulevard all the way to Whittier Boulevard and back in downtown Los Angeles.
There are three races available: a marathon, half marathon and mini-marathon. There will be a wave start to ensure all participants’ comfort. There are multiple waves assigned to several of the finishing times. Participants will be able to enjoy a scenic course highlight Downtown Los Angeles, live, local bands along the way, cheer squads, a free participant t-shirt, finisher certificates, a finisher’s medal, swag bag, and free admission to the Finish Line Festival and Post Race Concert as well as the Expo.
The Health and Fitness Expo will offer free samples, health and nutritional information, and showcase all the latest in running gear and sports apparel. Be sure to check out the Brooks Official Merchandise store for last-minute race-day essentials! All runners must pick up their race number, swag bag and t-shirt at the Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall K. Hours are 12pm to 6pm on Friday, October 26 and 9am to 5pm on Saturday, October 27.
