Raceday Logistics

The street closures will begin at approximately at 6:00 a.m. for the 7:00 a.m. start time.The streets will begin to reopen at an 18 min/mile pace from the time the last runner crosses the start line.There is a 4 hour time limit and it is estimated that the runners will clear the Colorado Business District before noon which also accounts for the time needed to clean the streets. In coordination with the Police Department, we will have designated intermittent traffic control points so that residents may cross the route during the closures.

  • Did the event in 2019

    Race course is beautiful! Nice combination of hills and flat or downhill. Major Traffic/parking issues before the race makes it stressful for runners. Need better traffic control and/or mandatory off site parking with bus shuttles in to relieve traffic congestion before race. Other than that I love the Pasadena half and will do it again next year.
  • Did the event in 2019

    Really enjoyed this race! Nothing beats finishing inside the Rose Bowl, with a slight downhill the last mile. Arrive early as there is a long wait to get to the ample parking near the Rose Bowl.
