We have already started off 2013 with some exciting events such as the LA Marathon! There’s nothing like moving in Los Angeles on your own two feet. The LA Marathon lets you do just that, and while some people like to get moving and running in the LA Marathon, I like to get moving in Los Angeles to see the LA Marathon! With the LA Marathon comes a lot of street closures, so be sure you’re in the know on how to keep moving in Los Angeles during the LA Marathon!

Take notice that there will be street closures in certain communities such as Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica. Freeways will also have minimal impact by the LA Marathon.  But don’t worry because it’s worth moving in Los Angeles since so many exciting events take place in the Los Angeles area. One for example is the Honda LA Marathon! The Honda LA Marathon will all begin on March 17, 2013 at Dodger Stadium and travel through many communities such as Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and end at the prominent Santa Monica pier.

If you’re a participant of the LA marathon you will have the chance to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sites such as El Pueblo de Los Angeles, Los Angeles City Hall, the Capital Records Building, the Sunset Strip, the historic Route 66, Rodeo Drive, the Santa Monica Pier and the Dolby Theater which is the home of the Oscars!!! But guess what…you don’t only have to be a running participant for the Honda LA Marathon to be part of the beautiful sites; if you’re moving in Los Angeles then you are one lucky mover because you will be surrounded with these amazing historic sites while you make a living in Los Angeles.

The LA Marathon will keep your energy running with some amazing bands and cheerleaders. As the cheerleaders will be lined up to cheer the runners for the finish line, runners will also be passing through various neighborhoods to get to the finish line in Santa Monica. The neighborhoods are Elysian Park, Chinatown, Oliver Street, Little Tokyo, Bunker Hill, Angelino Heights, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Little Armenia, Thai Town, Sunset Strip, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood, Veteran’s  Administration, Brentwood, and Santa Monica. All of these neighborhoods offer a unique and diverse experience!

The LA Marathon offers participants to register with an official charity to run for. Therefore, not only do runners go through an unforgettable experience but they also do it for a great cause! The donation goes to a charity you wish to register with.
