The Los Angeles Marathon is off to the races this Sunday, for the 37th annual edition of the race.

Here's what to know about road closures, the marathon route and the timing of the race for the 2022 event.
Rolling closures of streets and freeway ramps from Dodger Stadium to Century City are planned Sunday, starting in the early morning.
