Our Pasadena, CA City Challenge Urban Race 5K and Half Marathon was AWESOME!!! Our good friends Ruben, Eddie, Carlos and the entire staff at IX Tapa took such care of everyone it was no surprise by the time the day was done why they are so highly regarded as being THE hotspot in downtown Pasadena. The city, as always, had many attractions to offer the runners and walkers that came out to compete, and we did …not disappoint in showcasing some of the vast array of unique culture and history present there. Among the highlights of the day was meeting the ladies that came all the way from Glasgow, Scotland that told us they chose this race as their sightseeing adventure of the area, and how they couldn’t wait to send their pictures home. Another very cool thing was two teams of medalists were composed of folks who had never entered a race before! It’s always gratifying to see our unique model of event being truly open to and winnable by anyone. Medalist pics have been uploaded, and we are in the process of going through the flood of race destination pics submitted by quite a few of you. Thanks again to each and every one of you who came out, and for all the support of Hegness Events and our one-of-a-kind race series!
