Runners must be registered by February 15 at Noon (PST) for their name to appear on pace cars
Last year, for the first time ever, Honda wrapped two of the elite pace vehicles with approximately 18,000 marathon participant’s names. The name-covered cars were shown publicly during the pre-Marathon Expo at Dodger Stadium, as well as on display at the Finish Line Festival. We encouraged participants to take pictures of their names and the feedback from runners was so great that Honda has not only decided to bring back the name-wrapped cars, but is adding an additional vehicle to the fleet!
If you missed out on seeing your name on the cars last year, then make sure you take advantage of this return activation for the 2012 Honda LA Marathon by registering for the marathon by Wednesday, February 15 at Noon (PST). This is a unique photo opportunity you don’t want to miss! Plus, how many runners can brag about having their name lead the elite marathoners to the finish line!
Again this year the Honda vehicles will be showcased at the two-day expo and post-race for more great photo ops! To help you find your name race weekend, every runner registered by the February 15 deadline will have their name arranged in alphabetical order by last name split between one of three cars.
Of course, time is short for those who have not yet registered and want to have their name included on one of the three wrapped pace cars: the deadline of February 15 is tomorrow at Noon (PST)! Click here for quick and easy online registration for the 27th edition of the race on the iconic Stadium to the Sea course that will begin at Dodger Stadium, run through Chinatown, downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, the Veterans Administration property in West Los Angeles and finish on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica.
