L.A. Marathon moves through Echo Park

The Clinton Stairway that climbs the bluffs west of Glendale Boulevard provided some great views of the 25,000 marathon runners moving past Echo Park Lake. The streets were still closed off at 10 AM but the pack of runners had thinned considerably. Many Echo Park drivers were trying to figure away around the barricaded streets, and some residents on the western edge of Silver Lake residents were trying to catch up on their sleep after music started blaring at 6 AM at a marathon-sanctioned entertainment zone. “It’s louder than Sunset Junction,” said one resident via email. Most residents probably were still at home when Wesley Korir crossed the finish line in Santa Monica – 2-hours, 9 minutes and 20 seconds after the marathon began at Dodger Stadium, according to preliminary results.
