The Los Angeles Marathon (formerly the City of Los Angeles Marathon) is an annual running event held each spring in Los Angeles, California. The 26.219 mile (42.195 km) footrace, inspired by the success of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games held in Los Angeles, has been contested every year since 1986. The 31st edition of the marathon took place on Valentine’s Day February 14, 2016. The “Stadium to the Sea” course took runners from Dodger Stadium to the coastline of Santa Monica running past every major LA landmark.
The marathon is currently sponsored by Skechers, and thus its official title is The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. Over the course of its 31-year history, the LA Marathon has become one of the largest marathons in the country with more than 25,000 participants, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
Here is my Instagram photo recap of the trip and “26.2 Miles Of Greatness”.
