Los Angeles, it is time to get your run on: Registration opens today for the 2014 L.A. Marathon.
A discounted rate of $150 will be available to anyone who signs up before October 31, and after that the rate will go up to $160, reports City News Service. Runners can also sign up for the marathon plus the L.A. Big 5K for $175.00, or for the marathon and the LA Roadrunner Training Program for $250.00. Those interested can register here.
This year's marathon sold out, and 2014's is expected to sell out as well.
"It is our experience that when a race sells out, the demand increases exponentially for the event the next year,'' LA Marathon LLC Chief Executive Tracey Russell told CNS.
The marathon is always both loved and hated by residents of our fair city, as it shuts down streets all over town and makes driving difficult for the day. At least this year, Jesus made an appearance.
The marathon will be held on March 9 of 2014.
