Last night the Santa Monica City Council voted unanimously to allow the Los Angeles Marathon to run through their city on March 21st, while instructing city staff to work on the details with us. This is a huge and important moment for our Marathon, and we have our passionate supporters to thank for it. A route starting at Dodger Stadium, traveling through Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica can truly lay claim to highlighting the icons of LA. And all of you who signed petitions, made phone calls and spoke on our behalf can take pride of ownership in what will be one of the world’s great marathons.
The vote is in and the date change has been approved. We are excited to announce the the LA Marathon will next be run on Sunday, March 21, 2010. We had an amazing show of support by past participants, Legacy Runners, Students Run LA, charities, community members and clergy at today’s LA City Council meeting. Thanks to all of you who have worked so hard to make this happen.
We look forward to seeing you all in March!
