Congrats Ken on finishing the LA marathon a week after Backbone and a week before 9Trails! What a packed racing schedule. The race takes runners from the Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica Pier. The route passes through many of LA’s diverse neighborhoods, including Chinatown, Echo Park, Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, Beverley Hills, and more. A very urban yet scenic adventure. Definitely one of the bigger marathons in the US, the LA marathon promises plenty of spectators, aid stations, and support.
The course included some rolling hills but nothing Ken couldn’t handle after tackling the Santa Monica Mountains at Backbone. He sped through this race in less than 4 hours, finishing with a time of 3:58:52. Congrats Ken!
Ken Hughes: 2255th overall and 1845th GP, 3:58:52
