2021 Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS Announces New Finish Line Course Change Brings the Marathon’s Finish to Century City’s Avenue of the Stars
July 24, 2020
July 23, 2020, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA– The McCourt Foundation is proud to announce that the finish line for the Los Angeles Marathon presented by ASICS has moved to the Avenue of the Stars in Century City. The McCourt Foundation produces the Los Angeles Marathon in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles.
This change locates the finish line among the City’s best-known landmarks and within easy access of hotels, transportation and the entertainment areas of Westwood, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and the westside.
The new race course, dubbed “Stadium to the Stars”, will track the 2020 race course from its traditional start at Dodger Stadium into Brentwood where it will double back on San Vicente, Sepulveda and Santa Monica Blvd. to Avenue of the Stars.
“We’ve been thinking about the next evolution of the Marathon for a few years,” said Murphy Reinschreiber, Chief Operating Officer of The McCourt Foundation. “Finishing on Avenue of the Stars allows for a more vibrant and exciting finish experience than previously possible. We expect the closing miles and finish line to be the highlight of the must-do, world-class experience that is the Los Angeles Marathon.”
Race day won’t end at the finish line as the Avenue of the Stars location allows many options for post-race activities including a larger Finish Festival, concerts, sponsor activations, club and group gatherings, and VIP entertainment that were limited in the event’s previous footprint. Additional information will follow in the coming weeks.
