Frequently Asked Questions


To qualify for your 2020 Conqur LA Challenge medal you need to prove you completed the:

  • 2019 Santa Monica Classic (Live or Virtual)
  • 2020 Pasadena Half Marathon
  • 2020 Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS
If you are already registered for one of the qualifying races, you can register for the remaining races individually using the same email address. When you pick up your bib at the marathon expo, it should have a sticker that says Conqur LA Challenge. If it does not, please visit the Solutions booth at the expo to verify your eligibility. This ensures you will receive the medal at the marathon finish line.

Included in the registration fee is your race entry, participant shirt, finisher medal, access to the Rose Bowl field after you finish, post-race refreshments, live entertainment, access to the finish festival and one free craft beer for participants over 21 years of age.

As of November, we are more than 85% sold out, so register soon. Registration will close once we sell out.

This year we are offering remote packet pick up at convenient locations around Los Angeles.

Unless you purchase start line hospitality, all runners must pick up their own packet at one of these locations. There is no expo this year.

The Pasadena Half Marathon at the Rose Bowl will begin at the Rose Bowl and make its way through Pasadena past every major landmark before finishing on the field of the world famous Rose Bowl.
