PASADENA, Calif. (Jan. 20, 2020) – Over 12,000 registered runners took to the streets this past Sunday to participate in the sold-out 2020 Pasadena Half Marathon & 5K at the Rose Bowl. Runners of all ages and athletic abilities enjoyed another postcard perfect day in scenic Pasadena. The challenging half marathon course showcased the city passing landmarks like the Colorado Street Bridge, Old Town Pasadena and California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech) before returning to the Rose Bowl for a finish on the field at the 50-yard line.

Defending champions Cosmas Lagat and Worknesh Alemu both proclaimed themselves fit and ready to not only bid for back-to- back titles at the Tata Mumbai Marathon, but the pair also aim to attack the course records on Sunday (19 January).
