The marathon used to end near the Santa Monica Pier, but that proved too disruptive for the residents.
The 33rd annual Los Angeles Marathon is scheduled for Sunday morning. The weather should be overcast but dry, ideal weather for a marathon. 30,000 participants will compete in over 20 divisions.
The Los Angeles Marathon (formerly known as the Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event that has been held every spring in Los Angeles, California since 1986. The marathon was inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. , and became one of the largest marathons in the country, with over 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators. Since 2020, this event has been sponsored by Asics and is officially called the Los Angeles Marathon hosted by ASICS.
