By TJ Montemer
Organizers for the LA Marathon have announced a date for this year’s race which will see over 27,000 runners cross the new finish line in Century City.
The McCourt Foundation, host of the LA Marathon, announced recently that the race will take place this year on November 7. The 2021 course will follow its traditional route starting at Dodger Stadium until Brentwood. Then runners will double back on San Vicente, Sepulveda and Santa Monica boulevards before finishing at Avenue of the Stars in Century City.
“This exciting change allows for a more vibrant and interactive finish experience than previously possible. It will provide the opportunity for much greater spectator participation for family and friends with enhanced post-race activities including the Finish Festival with concerts and sponsor activations and puts runners close to hotels, transportation, and nightlife in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the best of LA,” the McCourt Foundation said.
The 2020 race took place just after both the County of Los Angeles and the City of Los Angeles declared states of local emergencies in response to the first cases of COVID-19 being confirmed in the region.
