Guide to the L.A. Marathon: Street Closures & Logistics Edition
With the sold-out L.A. Marathon--that's 25,000 people--on its new, yet popular, Stadium to Sea route, street closures will be aplenty this Sunday. The race moves mainly through Los Angeles, but it will also affect streets in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
“We urge people to check out the traffic plans posted by each city so that they’ll be well informed on where they can and can’t go and at what times of the day on Sunday," advises race director Nick Curl. "Each of these cities has formulated their own street-closure and traffic-control plan to meet the needs of the 25,000 participants and local residents."
On Monday, LAist posted information about Los Angeles here, but not the three other cities. Links to each of the city's traffic plans are below:
The race begins at 6:55 a.m. for wheelchair participants, followed hand cycles at 7 a.m., women’s elite runners at approximately 7:03 a.m. and the men’s elites and the rest of the field approximately 7:20 a.m.
