Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon

Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena Half Marathon Photos

These photos were taken at the first annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena Half Marathon, which was held this morning in Pasadena, CA as a benefit to Cure Mito. Cure Mito is an organization supporting Mitochondrial Disease advocacy, awareness and research. As mitochondrial disorders affect primarily children and includes diseases such as RAD, it was pretty much a given that I was going to get up early to cover this event.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series travels across the United States and parts of Europe, with each event supporting a different charity. The last event I attended in October raised monies for various charities, including ASPCA, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, TASK and St. Jude Hospital. This is a fun marathon as they set up stages with live bands performing along the course. The stage I was positioned at featured Rory Seldon with Inner Session. They played a nice mix of reggae and the runners seemed to enjoy them thoroughly. Continue reading

Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Los Angeles 2011 photos

Today was the 2011 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Los Angeles. Since my daughter and one of her friends were participating, I decided to get up early and head out to downtown Los Angeles to take some photos. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series is a fundraiser for various charities, including ASPCA, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, TASK, St. Jude Hospital and several others. They have marathons around the country. Today’s marathon had about 10,000 participants and there were live bands set up every mile along the course as well as cheerleaders from local high schools. There was a definite carnival attitude at the event.

Charlie Serrano won the men’s division and Deena Kastor won the women’s division.
