The 2020 Los Angeles Marathon runs through the city on March 8. With it comes a reminder of large-scale street closures through neighboring communities.
Participants and drivers should prepare for the 26.2-mile “Stadium to the Sea” marathon that starts at Dodger Stadium and runs through West Hollywood and Beverly Hills before concluding in Santa Monica.
“Experiencing the City of West Hollywood at a runner’s pace is a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning,” said John D’Amico, mayor of West Hollywood. “It seems obvious to me that the best 1.5 miles of the 26.2-mile L.A. Marathon course is the part in West Hollywood.”
The 2020 route will guide racers into West Hollywood along Sunset Boulevard at Marmont Lane, just west of Crescent Heights Boulevard. From the Sunset Strip, runners will turn south onto North San Vicente Boulevard and then west on Santa Monica Boulevard.
After running through West Hollywood, runners will continue onto Doheny Drive, where they will enter Beverly Hills at Beverly Boulevard.
“We are pleased to welcome the L.A. Marathon once again to the streets of Beverly Hills, where athletes will run along the iconic Rodeo Drive, giving them a world-class experience they will never forget,” said John Mirisch, mayor of Beverly Hills.
The city of Beverly Hills will have live entertainment for runners to enjoy during the marathon as a special treat.
Streets closures on March 8 are made to ensure the safety of participants.
Closures will run in West Hollywood from 4 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunset Boulevard between Marmont Lane and Clark Street/North San Vicente Boulevard, North San Vicente Boulevard between Sunset Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, Santa Monica Boulevard between La Cienega Boulevard and North Doheny Drive, and North Doheny Drive between Santa Monica Boulevard and Beverly Boulevard.
In Beverly Hills, closures run from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Doheny Drive from North Santa Monica Boulevard to Burton Way, Burton Way from Doheny Drive to South Santa Monica Boulevard, South Santa Monica Boulevard closed Rexford Drive to Rodeo Drive, Rodeo Drive from Santa Monica Boulevard to Wilshire Boulevard, Wilshire Boulevard from Rodeo Drive to South Santa Monica Boulevard and South Santa Monica Boulevard from Wilshire Boulevard to Moreno Drive.
Roads will reopen on a rolling basis at the discretion of the Los Angeles Marathon Unified Command and are subject to change. The race course is closed to all non-permitted bicyclists, skateboarders, skaters and pedestrians to ensure the safety of race participants.
In an effort to assist the public in avoiding possible traffic congestion and parking delays, the organization is informing the public to be aware of no parking and tow away zones.
Streets along the course will be marked with signs approximately 72 hours before the event. Vehicles in violation will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.
In tow-away zones, drivers must adhere to dates and times posted on streets.
