The inaugural Los Angeles Marathon was in 1986, born from the euphoria after the successful 1984 Olympics held in L.A. It had more than 10,000 entrants, making it the largest inaugural marathon in the world.
This year’s Los Angeles Marathon will be held on March 21st, 2010. The course has changed a few times in the 24-year history of the race. The 2010 course is brand new and is nicknamed “Stadium to the Sea”. The course takes runners from downtown Los Angeles to the Santa Monica coastline.
Each course in the history of Los Angeles Marathon has had a tradition for encouraging entertainment along the way. Music, dancing and other sorts of entertainment keep spirits up, spectators clapping, and runners going. A total of 1,000,000 spectators usually line the course and celebrate the 26,000 runners at the finish area. Get more information at the Los Angeles Marathon website.
