LA Marathon does it right – The course highlights are incredible, from starting at Dodger Stadium, through downtown LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica finish – it is an awesome course!
I took the shuttle from Santa Monica which smooth, they could add more portapotties, but what race couldn’t have more? Start was a bit hectic, but probably as organized as could be with 24,000 runners participating.
One of the highlights had to be the crowd support and aid stations. All throughout the race, it felt as if the entire LA community came out to support, and was instrumental in me finishing the last 10k. There is more than enough aide throughout the course; I only had to carry a few extra gels but hydration was taken care of.
The first early hills are not bad as they come early in the race (miles 3-6), but what really hurt me was after mile 20, the long gradual uphill parallel to the 405 freeway slowed my pace down drastically. However, with some better training and hill work, you should be able to have enough strength to take advantage of the long 2 mile downhill towards Santa Monica and the finish.
Medal was HUGE! I’ll definitely run this one again! It was a great experience exceptionally ran by the volunteers and directors.

They moved the runner check in spot behind the Planet Hollywood/Paris LV, which I thought made it much better – a lot more room to warm up and easy to find the bag check. Probably one of the flattest half marathon race in the country, the course basically takes you up and down the stripe for the half. You start on a very gradual uphill (and I mean very gradual), then make a turn downhill until downtown las vegas, then up the gentle slope. I really only felt the slight uphill in the last two miles while I was fatigued.
The course itself is awesome; just to be able to experience Las Vegas without the cars is amazing. If you’re not staying on the strip, I’d recommend park off a Monorail station (Convention center, Westgate) and take the monorail to the start. I found it much easier than trying to snag a parking garage spot and dealing with traffic.
Post race aide I always thought to be very well done my R&R, including chocolate milk, fruit, tons of snacks, Gatorade, and a beer.
