More than 24,000 runners are expected to participate in the Los Angeles Marathon this Sunday.
The race starts at 6:30 a.m., with the 26.2-mile "Stadium to the Sea" route beginning at Dodger Stadium and ending at Ocean and California avenues in Santa Monica.
The women elite runners are on the course. A small group of some of the best marathoners in the world have started and are making their way out of the Dodger Stadium area.
A little earlier, the wheelchair division kicked off the L.A. Marathon. The elite men have yet to start.
The majority of the runners don't start until 7 a.m.
