Looks like the Stadium to Sea route is a popular one. The L.A. Marathon, which can hold 25,000 runners, is 80% sold out, officials announced today. With over a month before race day, it's likely to reach 100% in just a few weeks. We’re confident we’re going to sell out and strongly encourage those who are training for the race but have not yet registered to do so immediately so they’re not turned-away,” said race president, Russ Pillar. In previous years--and like in many other marathons--a third of registrations happen the week of the race. "That’s not going to be an option this time,” Pillar warned.
