That Dam 30K is the perfect training run to get ready for the Los Angeles Marathon. The 30K course consists of two 9-mile loops starting in the Hansen Dam Recreation Area. The course travels along streets that are closed to traffic and, then, crosses the two-mile dam. After the second … MORE

    This is the perfect training run for the LA marathon. This is a students run LA event (which is a great program) and most of the runners are students but it also open to the public. I was planning to do an 18ish mile training run this weekend as part of my LA marathon training and saw this race advertised on the LA marathon facebook page and thought it would be a fun way to do it. It was a pretty no frills race but it was well organized and a good price for the distance. It doesn’t cost much more than some 10Ks in the LA area. As a result it isn’t the most scenic or have the best swag (you do get a cotton t-shirt and a small finisher medal). Parking was a mess, arrive earlier than 6:30 because you don’t want to be like me and have to walk a mile to your car after the race. The course was a 9 mile loop that you run twice and it was pretty challenging with some hills and inclines especially the dam at the end of the loop. I overheard someone say this race is harder than the marathon which I hope is true because while I had no problems finishing the race, my pace was a little slower than my goal. This was also a great event for all the students involved. While it wasn’t the most exciting or scenic race I’ve done, if you are training for the LA marathon this is a good race to keep you on track. I would recommend signing up for the Pasadena Half and then this 30K to keep you on top of your training.
