If you are planning on running the L.A. Marathon this year, you might want to weigh in on this issue:
Urgent Message for all L.A. Marathon Participants and Alumni
When we first announced our new point-to-point course last summer, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke to the significance of transporting participants for free on the Metro on race day. Yesterday, L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina, in her capacity as MTA Chair, said in a committee meeting that marathoners should not be provided with free race day transportation and withdrew the agenda item from next week’s MTA board meeting. Mayor Villaraigosa plans to take this matter directly to the MTA board meeting on February 22.
WE STRONGLY URGE YOU TO E-MAIL SUPERVISOR MOLINA TODAY TO EXPRESS YOUR OPINION ABOUT FREE RACE DAY TRANSPORTATION FOR MARATHONERS.
