The City of Los Angeles Marathon
On Sunday, March 15th, the 30th Annual City of Los Angeles Marathon will be held, and while the Marathon is a wonderful experience for many participants and spectators, it is always going to involve street closures, which can be a source of inconvenience to those trying to get from one place to another during the relevant hours.
Official street closures along the route are: http://www.lamarathon.com/race-weekend/street-closures
Please drive with special caution due to the rare presence of the marathon in our city – especially if the streets are wet with rain – and visit the official website http://www.lamarathon.com) for background information and any updates.
The course for the 26.2 mile race is the same as last year, reaching from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica and the ocean. The marathon starts Sunday morning at 6:55 a.m. for people with wheelchairs, 7:00 a.m. for those with hand cycles, and 7:25 for everyone else who is participating. Street closures along the route will have happened by 3:15 a.m. that morning with signage to that effect posted, and a temporarily restricted, no-parking policy will be strictly enforced. The route has been carefully shaped through a coordinated process that includes significant input from the LAPD, LAFD and LADOT.

Congratulations to all who take part, and thanks to all those who make this huge event possible. Stay safe and sound and have fun, everyone!
