leave a comment »

Organizers of the third annual Glendale Downtown Dash today said the event would be recognized as an official warm-up race for the L.A. Marathon in March.

The 5K run/walk benefit for the Glendale Adventist Medical Center, organized by the Downtown Glendale Merchants Assn., is scheduled for March 14, with the starting line set in front of the Alex Theatre on North Brand Boulevard.

The L.A. Marathon is scheduled for March 21.

As part fo the warm-up race program, L.A. Marathon Roadrunners will receive a $5 discount on the $25-entry fee for the Downtown Dash, organizers said.

Last year, pre-registration for the Glendale run, which snakes throughout the central/downtown area, nearly doubled to 920 compared to the inaugural year. More than 1,250 people eventually participated in the race.
