  1. How do I register?
    SOLD OUT.
  2. Is there Race Day registration?
    No, unfortunately we cannot process registrations on Race Day.
  3. Is there Expo registration?
    We will offer registration at The Great Race Place Expo for any event that has not sold out. Expo registration fees will be significantly higher than current fees, and because there are registration caps for all events, some events will sell out prior to the Expo.  
  4. What distance is the Marathon?
    Our Marathon (like all marathons) is 26.2 miles.
  5. Is the Marathon course certified?
    Our Marathon is USATF-certified, and a Boston Qualifier.
  6. Is the race timed?
    Yes, the Marathon is a timed event.
  7. Is there a Marathon training program?
    Yes, we are offering a free training program in partnership with the Pasadena Pacers. Click here.
  8. How many people will participate in the Marathon?
    Approximately 1500.
  9. Is there a cap on how many people can participate in the Marathon?
    Yes, there are registration caps for all events, and every year some Pasadena Marathon events sell out prior to the Expo. Avoid the disappointment of a sellout and save some money by registering early!
  10. How long do I have to complete the Marathon?
    Marathon participants must maintain a 15 minute/mile pace or faster. Streets on the racecourse will be reopened to vehicle traffic based on this pace, and those falling behind will need to move to sidewalks and adhere to all pedestrian rules.
  11. So, I can walk the Marathon?
    Yes, as long as you can maintain the 15 minute/mile pace or faster as described above.
  12. Can athletes in wheelchairs participate?
    Though we don’t have a wheeled division, athletes in wheelchairs may certainly participate.
  13. Can I push my child in a stroller?
    Paid registrants may push their infants and toddlers aged 3 and under in strollers on the Marathon course.  For the safety of all participants, children must remain in strollers at all times while on the racecourse. We also ask for your consideration of fellow runners in positioning yourself toward the rear of the starting line crowd.
  14. What is the minimum participant age?
    Marathoners must be at least 15 years old on Race Day.
  15. What goodies do I get?
    You will receive a tech shirt, bib, timing chip, and a bunch of SWAG in your race packet.  And, of course, you’ll get a medal upon crossing the Finish!
  16. What if I can’t make it to the Expo?
    If you know in advance that you won’t be able to attend the Expo, and you did not select the VIP option, someone else may pick up your race packet at the Expo on your behalf.  They will need to present a photocopy of your Driver’s License, State or Military-issued ID card, or Student ID card in order to retrieve your materials.
  17. Are there awards?
    Every Marathoner crossing the Finish Line gets a medal. If you’re going for the Gold, Silver, or Bronze, we will award the top three overall male and female finishers, as well as top three male and female finishers in each age division.
  18. Can I listen to music while I run?
    The answer is a weak “Yes.” You may bring your tunes, though for safety reasons, we don’t encourage the practice.
  19. Can I bring my dog?
    Our apologies to your Best Running Buddy—no dogs (or any other animal) on the racecourse.
  20. Can I skate the distance?
    Roller skates, inline skates, skateboards, scooters, and other similar wheeled recreational conveyances are not permitted on the race course.
  21. What about directions to the Start, carpool options, parking, and other logistical info?
    We understand that you're ready to map out your Race Weekend--but don't worry, we'll get lots of good information to you in the coming weeks.

Thanks for your interest in the 2012 Pasadena Marathon!
