WEST HOLLYWOOD—Runners in the 2022 Los Angeles Marathon Presented by Asics will be making their way through West Hollywood on Sunday, March 20 as part of a 26.2-mile Stadium to the Stars course.
Celebrating its 37th anniversary, the Los Angeles Marathon will be returning to its regularly scheduled annual March date after having been held in November 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Marathon course will begin at Dodger Stadium and it will conclude at Century Park in Century City. The portion of the route that runs through West Hollywood will not change.
The Los Angeles Marathon route for 2022 will guide runners westbound into West Hollywood along Sunset Boulevard at Marmont Lane 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 Beverly Hills at Beverly Boulevard. The Marathon will run through West Hollywood between miles 14 and 15 of the course.
