I have been an ambassador for the Los Angeles Marathon a quote few years now because I truly love the race. I get emailed and DM questions daily, so I thought I would add some FAQ’s about the race to my blog.
Q: Is the Los Angeles Marathon a good race for first time marathoners?
A: Yes! The time limit is super generous. The crowd support is amazing and will help carry you to the finish line!
Q: Is there a lottery to get in?
A: NO! All you have to do is register! You can even save money with discount code EMELIALA19
Q: What is the weather like?
A: It is Southern California in March. Sometimes it has been a little hot, sometimes it’s been a little rainy, often times the weather is perfect.
Q: If the race starts at Dodgers Stadium and Finishes in Santa Monica, where should I park?
A: Reserve parking ahead of time in Santa Monica and on race morning take one of the free shuttle buses from Santa Monica to Dodgers Stadium! This way your car is waiting for you at the finish line.
Q: Do I get to see any of the fun LA sites?
A: I always tell people that the Los Angeles Marathon is the best tour of LA you can get! You get to run through streets with no traffic and see all the sites including Downtown LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, and more! Check out the map above.
The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is March 24, 2019! Use code EMELIALA19 for a discount on your registration.
