Route information
Celebrate one of the world's most culturally diverse cities in the Los Angeles Marathon. With world-class entertainment and an iconic course through Downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, Hollywood, and more, all types of runners can enjoy this run.
The McCourt Foundation is proud to announce that the 2021 Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS will begin at Dodger Stadium and finish at Avenue of the Stars in Century City.
Following the traditional course until Brentwood, the course then doubles back on San Vicente, Sepulveda, and Santa Monica Blvd before finishing at Avenue of the Stars, making for a much more vibrant and interactive finish.
This new finish will allow for a much more spectator-friendly viewing experience and will provide much more opportunity for enhanced post-race activities including the Finish Festival. The Festival will be host to concerts, sponsor activations, and puts runners close to hotels, transportation, and nightlife in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and the best of LA.
