Run The 110 starts on Mission Street in historic downtown South Pasadena. From the start line, you will head up Orange Grove to the historic 110 Arroyo Seco Parkway for a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the West's first freeway by foot.
Runners and walkers will descend the on-ramp and enter the road heading north towards Pasadena. Do not worry about yielding to traffic or entering at a safe speed. While the 110 is infamous for its short ramps, you will not need to floor it because like a stunt driver in a car commercial, this closed road has been reserved for you and a couple thousand of your closest friends.
After passing the Fair Oaks overpass bridge, you will make a 180 degree turn and then continue southbound towards Downtown Los Angeles. Wind your way through the bends and turns of one of the oldest freeways in the United States. Just before you're tempted to merge onto the 5 freeway, the finish line will greet you on Avenue 26 in Lincoln Heights. Collect your bling and some water, have one of our official photographers take your photo, and enjoy the Lincoln Heights Activity Hub. You've just run the 110!
A commemorative Metro TAP card (Only to those registered before August 5)with pre-paid fare will make it easy to get to the start line, conveniently located adjacent to the South Pasadena "A" Line Station. However before you depart be sure to soak in this unique experience. The last time the parkway was opened to foot traffic was twenty years ago!
