Nearly a decade after its launch in Boston, the first annual “Run to Remember – Los Angeles” will happen on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016. Run To Remember Los Angeles is a half marathon that exists to honor fallen law enforcement officers, firefighters and first responders.
Run to Remember Los Angeles is a Half Marathon and 10k road race starting and finishing at The Grove. The course highlights the history and glamour of Los Angeles and Hollywood with featured miles through Paramount Studios and Hollywood Blvd. This race is being put on by and for the Los Angeles Police and LA Sheriff’s Department. To donate or participate, go to runtorememberla.org.
Note that the route includes Melrose Ave. east of La Brea Ave., La Brea Ave. south of Melrose Ave. and Beverly Blvd. and Third St. west of La Brea Ave.
Because this is a race and not just a “walk” some streets will not have crossings at least during some times early in the morning. Especially note the “loop” area bounded by The Grove, Beverly Blvd., La Brea Ave. and Third St. Motorists will be allowed to cross La Brea using 1st St. or 2nd St. traveling east toward Sycamore Blvd before 7 a.m. At 7a.m. the race begins and LADOT will implement a hard closure (no crossing points) of the area for approximately 1 hour. At 8 a.m., after all runners have safely started the race, Beverly Blvd will be reopened just to before LaBrea Ave., and motorists can then cross Beverly Blvd. or go west on Beverly towards Fairfax Ave.
