Los Angeles sports fans will flock to Dodger Stadium this Sunday -- not for delicious Dodger dogs and dingers, but for the vaunted LA Marathon. With more than 24,000 athletes from all 50 states and multiple countries competing, a record number of participants will (hopefully) earn their “26.2” bumper stickers in Santa Monica this weekend. Below you’ll find everything you need to know for race day, so you’re not blindsided by traffic on the way to an ill-timed brunch.
What time does the LA Marathon Start?
The race begins at 6:30am on Sunday, March 18, with the waves taking off in order of wheelchairs at 6:30am, handcycles at 6:42am, elite female runners at 6:45am, and elite male runners plus the full field at 6:55am.
