The course showcases the best of Los Angeles with runners hitting Downtown LA areas like Olvera Street, City Hall, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

From DTLA, the marathon takes runners through hip neighborhoods like Echo Park, Silverlake and Hollywood. The Hollywood stretch involves famous landmarks like Capitol Records, Hollywood and Vine, the Walk of Fame, and Grauman’s Chinese Theater. After Hollywood Blvd, the participants veer south one block to the Sunset Strip, before hitting the creative community of West Hollywood and Santa Monica Blvd, which is a stretch of Route 66.

It then gets fancy, as runners enter Beverly Hills and dash down Rodeo Drive. From here, they make their way through communities like Century City, Westwood, and West L.A., before the mad sprint through Palisades Park, and the finish line at the world-famous Santa Monica Pier.

Due to the many street closures, we get to take the morning off and enjoy cheering on participants.  We start conducting tours about 130PM, once the roads re-open.
