The Hollywood Half Marathon, 5K and 10K starts up at 6am on Saturday, April 5 – giving runners a chance to take on a course that includes some familiar sites. This year the 13.1 mile course is all Hollywood – both Echo Park and Silverlake have been removed from the course. Race organizers bill the race as being fast and mostly flat.
