Half marathon entry giveaway!

I have a great giveaway for you today!


The nice folks at US Road Sports & Entertainment Group put together the 13.1 series of half marathons and they are offering one reader of this blog to win a FREE entry to the 13.1 Los Angeles race that will take place in January.




Woo hoo! For anyone who runs in the LA area, or would like to head out there to escape the winter doldrums that hit right about mid-January, this is a super giveaway! The regular entry fee for the race is $85.


But, before I move on to the details, let me share some information about my personal experience with the 13.1 series. Back in April, I ran my first ever half marathon (I know, strange. I've run a marathon but, until April, I had never run a half!) and the half that I ran was the 13.1 New York, which took place in Queens. You can read my race report HERE. I enjoyed the race and LOVED the finisher medals! It was a fun race -- and the cheer squads certainly didn't hurt.




Finishing the 13.1 New York!


So, about the LA race. Here are the details:


13.1 Los Angeles
When: Sunday, January 15, 2012 at 7:00 am
Where: Venice Boardwalk at Rose Avenue in Santa Monica


According to race organizers, the course is new this year offering "a new scenic backdrop along the harbor of Marina del Rey and the shores of Playa del Rey . . . Runners who participate will enjoy course entertainment that includes fire dancers, Tokyo drummers, live bands, local cheer squads and volunteer groups." Dunno what type of entertainment those volunteer groups will be doing but you can find out.


You can read more about the race at the web site HERE
