Photos: The L.A. Marathon Route Lights Up The Night Sky
We're pretty used to seeing spotlights light up the night sky in Los Angeles, but on Friday night we had a very unique light show as spotlights marked every mile of Sunday's L.A. Marathon.Using the power of 124 spotlights (roughly equal to over 29,000 lightbulbs), marathon sponsor ASICS lit up the stadium-to-the-sea route to celebrate the race's 30th anniversary. Because we're Millennials and embrace our technologies, unlike the lazy Boomers, social media exploded with some spectacular photos of the light show. The conditions were just right, with a little bit of cloud cover providing a backdrop for the beams.
Oh, and if you're looking for them, here are the street closures for the race on Sunday.
