Only 25 more days until thousands of runners take the streets for the Los Angeles Marathon. This year's race spans 26 miles from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica Pier and tests the age-old stuck-in-traffic declaration: "It would be faster to walk than drive across this city."
The Sunset Strip is happy to welcome participants to miles 13 and 14 of this memorable course. Run where old Hollywood elite like Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Cary Grant played. And where The Doors, The Byrds, Led Zeppelin, Zappa and countless others performed.
Explore a car-free Sunset Strip and check out landmarks on this stretch, including the Sunset Tower Hotel, Andaz ('Riot Hyatt'), Chateau Marmont, The Comedy Store, Viper Room, Sunset Plaza, Whisky A Go-Go.
