LOS ANGELES – August 21 – The United Airlines Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Los Angeles Half Marathon, today announced a partnership with Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con. The two costume themed events will return to downtown Los Angeles this year on Halloween weekend, October 27-29.
As part of the partnership, event organizers have launched the Super Hero Challenge where anyone who attends at least one day of L.A. Comic Con and participates either the half marathon or 5K on Sunday will earn an exclusive special edition Super Hero Challenge Medal in addition to the finisher medal. Event goers can also enjoy discounts off both events. More information on the discounts and challenge can be found online.
“This partnership with Stan Lee’s L.A. Comic Con is such a perfect fit as both of our events take place on Halloween weekend and attract similar participants who love to have fun and dress up,” said Nathan Kopp, United Airlines Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles event manager. “We want to encourage attendees of both events to enhance their holiday weekend activities and embrace a healthy lifestyle.”
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is known for placing live music along the course to entertain runners as they make their way to the finish line. The race concludes with the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series headlined by Theo Katzman outside the L.A. Convention Center. All race participants will earn a finisher medal, technical participant t-shirt and gear bag, complimentary beer, and admission to the Finish Line Festival with a free post-race headliner concert.
Both events kick off Friday, October 27 at the L.A. Convention Center with Rock ‘n’ Roll’s Health & Fitness Expo taking place alongside the Comic Con festivities. The free expo is open to the public and will showcase the latest in running products, services and free samples from fitness experts as all registered runners pick up their race number, t-shirt and timing tag.
