The 29th edition of the ASICS LA Marathon is sold-out.
It‚Äôs the second straight year regular registration has sold-out, said marathon Chief Executive Tracey Russell.
The event, featuring more than 25,000 runners from all over the world, will once again follow its popular “Stadium to the Sea” course from the start line at Dodger Stadium to the finish just steps from the Santa Monica Pier.
“With our annual ASICS LA Marathon just days away, we cannot wait to give marathoners the experience of a lifetime,” said Russell. “We are excited to be sold out, but particularly proud that the recreational field includes more than 3,700 charity runners, who participate on behalf of one of the nearly 90 official charity partners of the ASICS LA Marathon. These dedicated and passionate runners are aiming to surpass last year‚Äôs total of $3.1 million raised for their respective causes.”
A very limited number of spots are still available to participate in the full marathon with an affiliated charity. Specific registration details can be found at asicslamarathon.com/charities.
A very strong elite field is in place including 2013 male winner Erick Mose from Kenya, who is anxious to repeat last year‚Äôs win and challenge the women for the $50,000 gender bonus prize.
For those unable to make the marathon as a runner or a spectator, KTLA will broadcast the race live on Sunday morning from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
