5 Last minute tips for the LA Marathon:

1. plan your fuel & gear for Race Day.Check and double check the weather report and your packing list. If you trained in cold weather – think about what you wear for race day conditions. Race day weather is in the low 60s – which I love! but if you trained in the now that might feel HOT. plan your gear and fuel according to your body’s needs and race day conditions.

2. Race morning Logistics. The LA Marathon is a point to point course = it starts at Dodger stadium and ends 26.2 miles away near the Santa Monica Pier. So most runners need to park near the beach and take a shuttle to the starting line. It’s a very early start and the streets will be jammed. plan how you’ll get to the starting line, what time you need to leave your home/hotel, driving, vehicle parking and walking time.

3. study the Course! I love the LA Marathon course! You’ll run by tons of iconic landmarks! and normally these streets are jammed so enjoy this rare opportunity!Tip: Photo-ops include the Hollywood sign, Disney concert Hall, Grauman’s Chinese Theater, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica Pier and more!!Tip: note where the aid stations are so you can fuel appropriately. If you have a sensitive stomach bring your own solid fuel (gus, energy bars, etc) and drink water on the course.

4. Spectators! have Camiseta AC Milan your spectators sign up for runner tracking so they know where you are on the course. since it’s point to point it’s hard to see someone run by more than once. Runner tracking helps know where your person is out there.

5. have FUN!You’re in LA! You’re running a race!! enjoy every second!! Run strong. have fun!!
