Thousands of eager professional and amateur athletes took to the streets Sunday to participate in the 36th Los Angeles Marathon, which was twice delayed this year because of the pandemic.

Those in wheelchairs began the race at 6:30 a.m. at Dodger Stadium, followed by elite women runners 15 minutes later and elite men and the full field at 6:55 a.m. Most participants were expected to take three to five hours to complete the 26.2-mile route from downtown to the finish line in Century City.

Runners make the turn onto 1st Street near City Hall at the three-mile mark.
