The clear plastic event-issued Participant Bag can be picked up at the NutriBullet Health & Fitness Expo during packet pick-up and will be the ONLY bag accepted at Gear Check. No exceptions. The Security Checkpoints will open at 3:00AM PDT (Note: Daylight Savings Time – Spring Forward – begins at 2:00AM).
Participants who will use a shuttle to access Dodger Stadium (Santa Monica, Union Station, Downtown LA, Beverly Hills) will be required to go through a security checkpoint prior to boarding their shuttle.

Gear Check is located in Lot K at Dodger Stadium. All gear checked at the Start Line will be transported to the Finish Line for pick up post-race. Participants must use the clear plastic event-issued Participant Bag to check gear. Non-transparent bags, back packs, or luggage will NOT be accepted. Do not check anything valuable or fragile in your bag as the ASICS LA Marathon is not liable for any loss or damage. Gear Check closes promptly at 6:45AM.
Seeded Corrals A, B, C, D, and E will open at 5:00AM. Each corral will have its own entrance and runners that have qualified for a Seeded Corral must show their bib to security personnel to gain entrance. The Seeded Corrals will close promptly at 7:00AM. Runners should plan accordingly and must be in their appropriate corral by 7:00 am or they will not be permitted entry into their seeded corral.
Restrooms are located in the northwest corner of Parking Lot 6 near Security Checkpoint #2, on the east side of Parking Lot 6 near the Shuttle Bus Drop-Off, in Parking Lot K adjacent to Gear Check, and inside Dodger Stadium on the Field Level concourse.
