Here’s the 2010 LA Marathon Route

You’ve seen a video with some of the highlights of our Stadium to Sea route, but now we’ve got the actual turn-by-turn course finished. Here’s a video we put together to show you the way. In addition, we’ve got a detailed Google map on the site, complete with icons along the course. We couldn’t be more excited for all of the runners in this year’s race.


Our new bigscreen TV

At Dodger games this season, I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to have a fun LA Marathon video playing on the big screen in left field. Well, I need not wonder any more. Thanks to our friends in Chavez Ravine, we’re now represented at the Stadium. The course video is now playing live during games for all 50,000 spectators to see. Love the great energy when it comes on. Here are some photos from last Monday’s game against Pittsburgh. Bert Whitson, the runner in the video, is our new Marathon celebrity!


LA Marathon in the Wall Street Journal

Saw this in today’s Wall Street Journal. We’re excited that people far and wide are taking notice of our Stadium to Sea route.


Santa Monica–here we come!

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.

Last night in the meeting there was a virtual parade of marathon friends and family there to speak on our behalf–SRLA runners, Charities, Legacy Runners, residents, local track coaches, and the list goes on. It was a very inspiring evening. As a result of doing the community outreach to get the Stadium to Sea course done, we now feel more deeply connected to the Los Angeles community than ever before. It’s exciting to know how many people in the region are already excited about the 2010 LA Marathon.

Now we face the task of actually planning and executing the event. As Frank McCourt said last night, “The devil is in the details.” That job starts now, and we know we have to put on a race that lives up to this great course. Thank you all again for your support, and stay tuned for details about participating in the 25th Anniversary of the Los Angeles Marathon.
