The L.A. Marathon Course
The marathon course will follow its traditional route until Brentwood, where runners double back on San Vicente, Sepulveda and Santa Monica Blvd before finishing at Avenue of the Stars. This exciting change allows for a more vibrant and interactive finish experience than previously possible. It will provide the opportunity for much greater spectator participation for family and friends with enhanced post-race activities including the Finish Festival with concerts and sponsor booths.
Spectator access will be limited on Santa Monica Blvd from Avenue of the Stars to Century Park East and Century Park East from Santa Monica Blvd to Constellation. Any spectator wishing to watch their runner cross the Finish Line will need to position themselves on Santa Monica Blvd and Ave of the Stars near/in the bleachers.
Parking at the finish line in Century City
There is ample parking in Century City for participants and spectators alike.
