As runners make their way northwest on Sunset Boulevard — through Hollywood and West Hollywood then into Beverly Hills and Century City — streets that closed in the early hours of the morning will reopen behind them.

Go deeper. Aaricka Washington, who writes our How to LA morning newsletter, is running her first ever marathon. She writes about the experience of getting ready:

In addition to the 26.2-mile marathon, there will be a charity half marathon, a 5K and a kids 0.5K. The 5K is family friendly and open to walkers and strollers as well as runners. It will take participants through Elysian Park and is scheduled for March 18.

The kids 0.5K, also scheduled for March 18, is recommended for children between the ages of 3 and 8.
