About The Los Angeles Marathon
The Los Angeles Marathon (LA Marathon) is run through the streets of the City of Angels every year in the spring. This first LA Marathon in 1986 had more than 10,000 entrants making it the largest inaugural marathon in the world—now, the race sells out with 25,000 runners and walkers. The course has changed a number of times with the latest change in 2010 with the "Stadium to the Sea" course, beginning at Dodger Stadium and finishing at the Santa Monica beach. Despite these course changes however, the Los Angeles Marathon has held a strong tradition of linking the community with the event by encouraging course support and entertainment and by providing personalized runners bibs that encourage spectators to cheer on racers by name.
