Every year, thousands of LA Marathon runners train for the 26.2-mile race that winds through the city from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica. But the Asics LA Marathon is way more than just the miles—it's about knowing where to train, having a solid playlist of running songs and having the support of spectators and the city behind you. Whether you're a runner or a spectator, here's our guide to LA's other parade (this one has way more Lycra than roses).

When is the LA Marathon? Great question. It's on Sunday, March 15, 2015.
