Once a year you can experience traffic free streets in normally congested Los Angeles as roads are blocked off for runners and bikes for the LA Marathon
. The annual Los Angeles Marathon
events include the 26.2 mile Marathon past some of LA's most famous landmarks and through diverse neighborhoods with festivities all along the course. Block Parties with live performances are spaced along the route to entertain fans while they're waiting for runners to pass. The biggest festivities are, of course, at the Finish Line Festival. Other events associated with the Marathon are the Health & Fitness Expo at Dodger Stadium
and the Motivational Dinner the night before the race. The 5k run/walk will be held the day before the LA Marathon, and there is no bike tour.
The 2014 LA Marathon is scheduled to be run on the same Stadium to the Sea route as last year beginning at Dodger Stadium
and running to the Santa Monica Pier, through Chinatown, Silverlake, Hollywood, West Hollywood
and Beverly Hills.Pre-Marathon 5K Run/Walk:
