- 3 miles/5K, 6 miles/10K, 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
Having only done the 5K the year prior, I wasn't sure what this course really entailed for 13.1 miles. Turns out, it's mostly along the Santa Ana River Trail and I can imagine (during a non-drought time) is quite beautiful. Miles 4-6 jut you out through some neighborhoods and then back down to the trail for and out-and-back to mile 8 and then back to start.
I was fortunate enough to get to pace this race as well, so I had a great time being able to cheer folks into their finishes.
T-shirts were great this year, and it can't get much better than your race entry included post-race food trucks! I scooped up a hot dog (delicious) and enjoyed our beer garden celebration (also included!). The Lace Up series is one of my favorite in Southern California. Among the 5K, 10K and half marathoners that day, there were still less than 1,200 people - a great intimate race with some big-race qualities and entertainment! Thanks Lace Up!
