That's it folks. For the first time in the races 25-year history, the Los Angeles Marathon has hit capacity. You can thank the new Stadium to Sea route, which features regional icons like Dodger Stadium, the Sunset Strip and near the Santa Monica Pier. There's still one way to participate, however: do the 5K Run/Walk companion race. Unlike year's previous, the traditional bike tour, which allowed cyclists to bike the route before runners took the course, was canceled to great disappointment. Race day is Sunday, March 21st.
