Marathon Runners Heading To WeHo

Runners in the 2021 Los Angeles Marathon presented by Asics will be making their way through the City of West Hollywood on Sunday, November 7, 2021. 

The Los Angeles Marathon which would have taken place in Spring of this year will now take place on November 7th, delayed due to regulations for COVID-19. The 2022 event is scheduled to take place as usual in March 2022. 

Celebrating its 36th anniversary, the Los Angeles Marathon, a 26.2-mile Stadium to the Stars course will begin once again at Dodger Stadium, but it will now conclude at Century Park in Century City, rather than in the City of Santa Monica as in previous years. The portion of the route through the City of West Hollywood remains unchanged.

The Los Angeles Marathon route for 2021 will guide runners westbound into the City of West Hollywood along Sunset Boulevard at Marmont Lane, just west of N. Crescent Heights Boulevard. From the Sunset Strip, runners will turn left (south) onto N. San Vicente Boulevard; then right (west) onto Santa Monica Boulevard; then left (south) onto N. Doheny Drive, where they will enter the City of Beverly Hills at Beverly Boulevard. The Marathon will run through West Hollywood between miles 14 and 15 of the course. 

“As Los Angeles Marathon runners set out on a new 26.2-mile course from Dodger Stadium to the Avenue of the Stars in Century City, they’ll pass through incredible spots in our city that make history and mark progress,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister. “West Hollywood has an unparalleled historical connection to music, entertainment, architecture, fashion, and culture-making that the global Marathon community will experience. The Sunset Strip is home to numerous one-of-a-kind music venues, hotels, and restaurants, and the Rainbow District on Santa Monica Boulevard is a glittery slice of Route 66 at the center of the region’s LGBTQ community and activism. We’re doing everything we can to make sure residents, businesses, and visitors are aware of the Marathon taking place to ensure that impacts are minimized and we encourage runners to make it a safe experience for everyone by getting fully vaccinated, by wearing masks when it’s required, and by adhering to social distancing when it’s possible.”

To ensure the safety of the large numbers of Los Angeles Marathon runners, there will be several street closures in the City of West Hollywood on Sunday, November 7, 2021 from 4 a.m. to 2 p.m.; crews will work to reopen roads to vehicle traffic as quickly as possible as the Marathon moves through the City of West Hollywood. 

Parking will be strictly prohibited along the Los Angeles Marathon route. “No Parking” signs will be posted prior to the event. Vehicles in violation will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

Los Angeles Marathon spectators and community members who are searching for alternative parking solutions in West Hollywood during the Los Angeles Marathon are encouraged to visit the City of West Hollywood’s website, where a directory of parking structures and municipal lots with hours of operation and rates is available online.
