Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Halloween Half Marathon & 5K

Sunday, October 28, 2018 • Los Angeles, CA • Course Map

Set for its 9th annual running in 2018 along a mostly flat course that takes runners from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the campus of the University of Southern California to downtown L.A. and back, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Halloween Half Marathon sees runners come dressed out in every costume you can imagine — zombie Hooters waitresses, Superman, skeletons, rodeo clowns, and much, much more.


The race features an out-and-back route that starts and finishes at L.A. Live, the entertainment complex located near the Staples Center, the home of the NBA’s Lakers. From there, the course takes runners on a pair of out-and-back stretches that lead away from the Staples Center and back, with the first taking runners south toward the L.A. Memorial Coliseum and Exposition Park.

Runners make their way to the University of Southern California campus, turning around just before reaching the campus proper, and then head back north past the finish line and into downtown Los Angeles.

The next stretch of the course brings runners into and then west of downtown Los Angeles, taking them through MacArthur Park and the Koreatown neighborhood, known as one of the most exciting places to eat in America to David Chang, world-renowned chef and founder of the Momofuku Restaurant Group, David Chang.

Runners reach the second turnaround point just before reaching the Miracle Mile (near mile 8 of the half marathon course). From here, runners turn around and head back to the finish line at the Staples Center.

Runners will have four hours to finish the half marathon — note that this time is according to each runner’s own personal chip time, not the overall starting gun time for the race. For those who don’t feel up to running 13.1 miles, the event also hosts a 5K race.
