The 2022 Los Angeles Marathon, the “Stadium to the Stars” on March 20, is presented by Asics, a Japanese multinational corporation that sells athletic footwear, clothing and accessories.

Asics — an acronym taken from a Latin phrase that may be translated to “sound mind, sound body” — is also hosting the required bib and race packet pickup for registered marathon runners at a Health and Fitness Expo on Friday and Saturday.

Details on the pickup for runners may be found beginning on page 5 in the final 2022 online information program here: bit.ly/3ie2FVn

The public is also invited to attend the free expo to shop for official Los Angeles Marathon clothing and footwear and see new designs in athletic clothing and footwear and health products from exhibitors. Information about the expo: www.lamarathon.com/pages/los-angeles-marathon-expo

The bib pickup and “Health and Fitness Expo” is held at Dodger Stadium, Lot G, 1000 Vin Scully Ave., Los Angeles. Free parking available through Gates A and E.
