Description

Push your limits and test your stamina by participating in the annual LA Marathon this spring. You're not a professional athlete? Don’t worry, because neither are 50 percent of the participants. The 26.219-mile race was inspired by the 1984 Summer Olympic Games held in Los Angeles. Today it attracts over 25,000 participants from all around the globe, including celebrities. For example, Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest boxers of all times, served as the honorary race starter on several occasions. LA Marathon differs from hundreds of others throughout the country in its creativity and innovativeness. It was the first one to employ a field-wide chip timing system, to create personalized bib numbers or to use social media outlets to promote the event as well as to connect participants with each other. The organizers love to experiment with divisions and challenges, making this marathon unique and diverse. Additionally, the day before the event you can attend the expo, where you can purchase everything to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So register for the marathon, bring your support team and see just how far you can expand your boundaries.
