L.A. Marathon Nearly Sold Out

The 25th Honda L.A. Marathon has reached 80% capacity with still over a month until the race begins, states RunnersWeb.com. "The response to our new Stadium to the Sea route has been tremendous," said marathon president Russ Pillar."We passed the 20,000 registered runner markquickly and have placed a cap of 25,000 entrants on this year's race." The amount of early registrants is unusual. In past years, as many as one-third of actualregistrations for the race have come in the final week. Starting just outside of the centerfield fence at Dodger Stadium on Sunday, March 21, the 26.2-mile race will wind through downtown Los Angeles, then movethrough Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the Veterans AdministrationHealthcare Center grounds in West Los Angeles before finishing just north of the Santa Monica Pier.
