Acura LA Bike Tour Finisher Certificate
Friday, June 5, 2009
Whether you ran it, walked it, volunteered for it, sponsored it, or cheered for it, I’d like to thank everyone who took part in last week’s 2009 Los Angeles Marathon. Though we faced a host of challenges – not the least of which was the Memorial Day date – we did it, together!
As we plan for next year’s Marathon, many of you have reached out to voice your support for moving the race back to a Sunday in March. We’ve heard you and we agree. Now, the Los Angeles City Council needs to hear from you.
The Council is set to vote on a proposal to return the marathon to its traditional March date; in fact, one of the Council’s committees already has endorsed the change. But we need your help to ensure that the full Council votes to adopt the measure. Please click on the link here (http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/los-angeles-marathon-date-change) to sign our petition telling our elected officials that the race date matters and that you want to see the Los Angeles Marathon held on a Sunday in March. Then forward this note to friends, family members, and anyone else you can think of who may wish to join our effort.
As always, we appreciate your support and thank you for your assistance. Working together, we’re confident in our ability to continue to build a world-class event that, true to our mission, inspires athletes and connects communities.
See you on the road!
Russ Pillar, President
The Los Angeles Marathon

Well can you believe the big day for the Acura LA Bike Tour is tomorrow morning? Now it's time for you to make sure everything is double checked and in order. Get your packet today because you won't be able to pick it up in the morning. The start is 5am so you should try to plan on getting to the start at 3:30. There are so many people doing this and you don't want to be in a rush that extra time will go very quickly. Make sure you're bike is in perfect working order and the tires pumped up. It'll be cool out tomorrow morning and you might be standing at the start a little while so you want to dress warm but layer since you'll warm up on the ride. Make sure to get your water bottles and any food/energy bars packed up with your helmet and other cycling gear by tonight. Sure the start is early but the experience of having open LA roads to you on a bicycle ride while watching the sun rise is priceless. Be safe and have fun!
