Beginning at Dodger Stadium, and finishing just steps away from the Santa Monica Pier, the L.A. marathon is one of the largest in the country, with over 25,000 participants, and hundreds of thousands of spectators scattered along the course in support. If you’re not interested in churning out 26.2 miles yourself, consider heading out to cheer on those crazy enough to do so. Entertaining signs and costumes abound—last year’s best dressed include a runner dressed as a car, a three-dimensional bird, and a man wearing lederhosen.
