LA Marathon 2011 (Read 536 times)

gohmdoree


    I was thinking of signing up for the LA Marathon in 2011 for my first.  By any chance there any coupons?  Kind of steep I think.


    All business

      "heartla" used to save me 15 dollars, though doesn't appar to do so this year.

      This was a good course, but no marathon (in my opinion) is worth a $156 entry fee.  LA is definitly overrated

        Geez! That's spendy!

         

        The new course was good. I was surprised at the crowd support. Everything else about the race was pretty much botched: horrible expo, disastrous shuttle service, delayed start, porta-pot snafus...I could go on. You might want to give them a couple years to see if they can sort it all out before forking over that kind of cash.

          Not that I would have to worry about it, but isn't this the marathon that couldn't pay it's winners for a year or two?

          I'm touching your pants.

            You know there is a Marathon that same weekend in your home state.

             

            Cheaper by a lot -

            - no cross country flight

            - no hotel

            - cheaper registration

             

            Just sayin... check out the NJ Ultra Festival

              New owner (Frank McCourt, also the owner of the Dodgers) - it was Devine that had the problems paying up (I think there was even a rumor that the port-a-pot folks didn't get paid).
