LA Marathon's 2011 New Stadium to the Sea Route Revealed
The Honda LA Marathon has just revealed the course map for the 2011 race, which takes place on March 20th. Using this animated video to show the route, runners and spectators can check out all the landmarks included from last year's inaugural Stadium to the Sea course, and note the new loops that will pass through Chinatown (mile 2) and Little Tokyo (mile 3).
“We believe this marathon course gives runners a unique opportunity to experience the best of Los Angeles,” said LA MARATHON LLC Chief Operating Officer Nick Curl. “With the addition of Chinatown and Little Tokyo, the Stadium to the Sea course will show runners even more of what makes Los Angeles so great.”
Other slight changes to this year's course is to skip the loop around Dodger Stadium, but keep the historic venue as the starting point, and to end a few blocks north of last year's finish, to give runners time to recuperate.
So, who's running?
