The 25,000 runners comprising the sell-out group of participants took to the glorious new Stadium to the Sea route of the LA Marathon in what commentators couldn't help but refer to a "sea of humanity," but one man and one women were destined to be deemed winners in this 25th annual running. Two Kenyans emerged as champs, Wesley Korrir and Edna Kiplagat, and their victories and times were announced live on air and via Twitter: Honda LA Marathon Official times Wesley Korir 2:09:19 - Edna Kiplagat 2:25:38. As the rest of the participants make their way to the shore on this beautiful spring day, congratulations to everyone!
