The Labor of Love Marathon runs along the paved Lovell Canyon Road for roughly 11 miles. This first section of the course consists of rolling and gradually uphill terrain.
At mile 11 runners turn around and run 2.1 miles out and back along the same paved road, before returning to this same aid station.
The course then turns around again and returns via the 11 rolling and gradually downhill miles back to the finish.
The Labor of Love Marathon was the 576th largest marathon in the U.S. last year and was the 561st largest in 2014.
This year 7.9% of finishers qualified for the Boston Marathon and 2.9% of runners qualified for Boston in 2015.
This gives the Labor of Love Marathon the 435th highest percentage of Boston Marathon qualifiers in the U.S. last year and the 191st highest percentage so far in 2016.
