November 30, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
Organizers of the 2011 Honda LA Marathon have released the routes for the race. Runners will start at Dodger Stadium and finish on Ocean Avenue near the Santa Monica Pier.

The Stadium to the Sea course debuted at the 2010 marathon. Runners will pass by the same landmarks from the 2010 race, but Chinatown's Dragon Gateway and the Little Tokyo Historic District have been added to the new course.

Other major landmarks that runners will pass include: Los Angeles City Hall, Grauman's Chinese Theater, the Capitol Records Building, Rodeo Drive and more.

"We believe this marathon course gives runners a unique opportunity to experience the best of Los Angeles," said LA Marathon LLC Chief Operating Officer Nick Curl. "With the addition of Chinatown and Little Tokyo, the Stadium to the Sea course will show runners even more of what makes Los Angeles so great."

The race will be held Mar. 20, 2011. Registration has already started and organizers said the race is expected to sell out.
