Reach the Beach at the L.A Marathon

If you’ve resolved to get/stay fit this year and are looking for an urban adventure, it’s not too late to register for the Asics L.A. Marathon. Taking place Sunday, March 9, this 26.2-mile Boston Marathon qualifier run is a great way to take in Los Angeles and surrounding areas while burning calories and feeling proud of your impressive accomplishment.

The race gets underway bright and early on March 9 at Dodger Stadium. The course, an overall downhill race from starting line to finish line, starts well inland from the Pacific Ocean. But fear not — with each step toward the finish line you’ll be getting closer to the fresh ocean breeze.

Between the start and finish line, however, you’ll venture past some of L.A.’s best-known districts, landmarks and monuments: the Chinatown Dragon Gate, Echo Park Lake, Capitol Records Tower, Hollywood & Vine, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, Rodeo Drive and much more.

Once you’ve wound your way through L.A., you’ll feel your adrenaline kick in as you near the finish line at the intersection of Ocean Avenue and California Avenue in Santa Monica.

You’ll want to replenish your nutrients and liquids after such a physical output, so be sure to book a spot at one of L.A.’s inimitable restaurants. Providing your muscles haven’t stiffened up too much, dance the night away at one of the Sunset Strip’s hottest clubs.

Bring your running gear but leave room in your suitcase — once you run past some of L.A.’s hottest shopping districts you’re sure to want to come back for the latest in fashions for all tastes and from the hottest designers.

Book your hotel early, as rooms are sure to be at a premium as thousands of runners descend upon L.A. Magellan Luxury Hotels’ Los Angeles partner hotels offer plenty of options for carb-loading, pre-race workouts, unwinding with a post-race massage and more.
