2013 LA Marathon Course: Anything L.A.

On Sunday, March 17, 2013, thousands of runners will navigate their way from Downtown LA to Santa Monica in the 28th annual LA Marathon. The 2013 LA Marathon will be the fourth running of the iconic “Stadium to the Sea” course, which takes runners from Dodger Stadium to the Pacific Ocean. Runners will pass many of LA’s world‐famous landmarks along the way, including Walt Disney Concert Hall, TCL Chinese Theatre, the Sunset Strip, Rodeo Drive and the Santa Monica Pier. Dozens of bands, cheerleaders and other entertainment will be stationed at mile markers throughout the race to entertain spectators and motivate runners.

Reflecting its status as a premier race, the LA Marathon received the coveted designation as the nation’s best big city race in the January 2013 issue of Runner’s World magazine. “We are honored to be recognized by the leading running publication as the best big city race in the country,” said Nick Curl, LA Marathon’s Race Director. “We continue to challenge ourselves to enhance the runner experience from year to year, and recognitions like these confirm that our efforts are working.”

Registration for the LA Marathon closes on January 14, 2013. Registration for the LA Big 5K, which does NOT include Marathon entry, closes on March 8th.
