participant in the 37th Annual LA Marathon On Sunday you can expect ideal Southern California weather conditions for the big race, which is expected to attract thousands of runners.
Partly cloudy skies early Sunday are expected to give way to sunny skies and cool temperatures for most of the day, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures range from the mid 60s to mid 70s, with winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour from the northwest.
The marathon is expected to feature around 15,000 runners from across the country — and the world — covering a 26.2-mile course that spans some of LA’s most iconic neighborhoods.

Runners begin at Dodger Stadium, turn downtown and sail under Chinatown’s Dragon Gate, past Olvera Street and through Little Tokyo before turning northwest past Echo Park Lake and into Hollywood. Wheelchair users start at 6:30 am, followed by elite female runners at 6:45 am and elite runners at 6:55 am
