L.A. Marathon to Run Through Westside Sunday

By Chad Winthrop

On Sunday, March 24, runners from all around the world will lace up their kicks and participate in the annual Los Angeles Marathon.

A field of close to 24,000 runners is expected on race day. The front of the race will be highlighted by an elite international field to include top professionals from Mexico, Ukraine, Kenya, and Ethiopia.

The  “Stadium to the Sea” course, which has been in place since 2008, shows off some of the very best of Los Angeles.  With Dodger Stadium as the starting point, the course traverses from downtown LA, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills to Santa Monica with a majestic finish overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

In traversing this course, runners will pass through many areas in and surrounding the Westside, and while the action will no doubt be exciting, the race will have a significant impact on traffic (for the worse, not the better). While staying off the roads is advised on Sunday, for those who need to hop in the car, here is a list of closures, and the time in which they will be closed, in and around the Westside.
