Sean Astin (not Rudy!) runs onto Rose Bowl Field!

Sunday morning brought light showers, moments of sunshine, and over one thousand runners to the Rose Bowl Stadium as athletes lined up to race in the 14th running of the Rose Bowl Half Marathon. This year’s course took athletes on over nine miles of trails all surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium before leading them onto the field to finish on the 50 Yard line. …
Among the many athletes in attendance for this year’s race was actor Sean Astin. Astin, who famously starred as Rudy, ran with athletes to midfield as they experienced their own charge on to hallowed ground through the stadium tunnel as fans cheered them on to the finish line. “A lot of people want to make it to the Rose Bowl. After two hours of grinding it out in the elements, I was definitely one of them! It was a great run with a field of serious athletes. Taking pictures with runners and collecting a great looking medal were definite highlights!” Astin stayed well after finishing to pose with fans and discuss the course with his fellow competitors.
