This is an unofficial 11 mile run that starts at the Starbucks (3429 East Foothill Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91107). There are many FREE parking spaces available at the Sierra Madre train station. Please do not park at Starbucks unless someone is dropping you off as this is a mall. You will be ticketed or towed for extended parking. Please park across the street at the Metro station.
This run basically starts at the end of the Rose Parade route, goes to the beginning (we get there around 5:50 am 10 min/mile pace) where we can spend approximately 30-45 minutes viewing the floats.
We will meet up again at approximately 6:45 a.m. and head back down the parade route to the Starbucks to enjoy some hot coffee/tea/chocolate.
I will be leaving Starbucks at 5 AM but I will be there as early as 4:30 AM (in case 10 min/mile pace is too fast and you want to leave a little earlier). We have all pace runners - you will find someone to run with!
It was in the 30's last year so you need to dress appropriately - the key is to layer! Gloves are a great idea.
