The Los Angeles Marathon is an annual 42-kilometer-long distance race that has taken place every March since 1986. Inspiration for the organization was the 1984 Olympic Games. It is currently sponsored by Sketchers. During its history it became one of the largest marathons in the country, involving more than 25,000 runners, thousands of volunteers, and hundreds of thousands of spectators from around the world.

The marathon route is called the "stadium to the sea" and passes by the main attractions of Los Angeles: from Dodger Stadium to the finish line in Santa Monica. A lot of schoolchildren and students take part in the Los Angeles marathon. In educational institutions, special courses are provided that help prepare for the run.
