Thousands of runners poured through the streets of Echo Park and Silver Lake this morning for the 2017 L.A. Marathon. After starting at Dodger Stadium, the marathoners flooded into Downtown before turning west on their way to the finish line in Santa Monica. Residents cheered and photographed the runners as they passed by Echo Park Lake and then headed westbound on Sunset Boulevard into Silver Lake.
Streets in both neighborhoods are expected to reopen before noon, if not earlier in many cases, but bus service could remain disrupted and delay for much of the day.
