2022 LA Marathon

Join us on March 20, 2022


Join Team AFSP for our seventh year as an Official Charity with the Los Angeles Marathon and the Charity Challenge!


It's Sunday morning and excitement fills the air as you take your place for the start of the Los Angeles Marathon! The Los Angeles Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, March 20, 2022, is a scenic tour throughout the best spots in LA from stadium to the Century City- Avenue of the Stars.

Athletes will enjoy world-class entertainment and celebrate one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world as the course winds through Downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, Hollywood, and more. The course will follow its traditional route until Brentwood, where runners double back on San Vicente, Sepulveda and Santa Monica Blvd before finishing at Avenue of the Stars. This exciting change allows for a more vibrant and interactive finish experience than previously possible. It will provide the opportunity for much greater spectator participation for family and friends with enhanced post-race activities including the Finish Festival with concerts and sponsor activations and puts runners close to hotels, transportation, and nightlife in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the best of LA.

Space is limited, so join today!
