The L.A. Marathon gets rolling at 6:55 a.m. on Sunday, March 17 at Dodger Stadium and will conclude 26 miles later at the Santa Monica Pier in the “Stadium to the Sea” course. The route winds through West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the federal VA property.

Some 24,000 entrants are expected, making the race once again one of the five largest marathons in the U.S. and one of the dozen largest in the world.

Entertainment planned for the course includes more than 35 bands, 500+ cheerleaders, five entertainment centers and programs from half of the marathon’s official charities.

Traffic will be snarled all along the route and surrounding areas. Here are turn-by-turn directions for the route, or go the L.A. Marathon website for a course map.
