Mini Marathon Marred by Maladies and lack of Medals

Despite the overwhelming heat on Sunday hearty athletes competed in Pasadena Forward’s Half Marathon.
Fifteen people were overcome by the heat, and six people were transported to Huntington Hospital.
But to add insult to injury, not all runners got their medals upon finishing. Apparently there was a shortage of the bling to pass out to those who paid their fees to run in the unremitting heat.
However the website for Pasadena Forward offered this consolation prize:
“Congratulations to all finishers, and a huge thanks to all of the volunteers who braved the heat from as early as 3:30 am until noon with set up, clean up and everything in between. There were a few shortcomings in our plans this year…If you did not receive your medal, please send us an email at with your bib number. We will be placing a replacement order within a few days and will mail them out just as soon as they arrive. We are sincerely sorry for this disappointing lapse on our behalf but we do hope to make it right.”
