An early-riser in Angelino Heights managed to set up a camera to catch the eastern end of this morning's marathon. The time-lapse video captures (most of) the front runners to the stragglers to the clean-up crew that gets it ready for traffic. (h/t The Eastsider LA)

The videographer Laura Birek describes what you see above:

Time lapse of the beginning of the 2013 Los Angeles Marathon, March 17th, 2013. Taken from a hill in Angeleno Heights, looking over Elysian Park Avenue, just before the 1 mile mark. This time lapse is 932 frames taken over 62 minutes (from 7:29 to 8:32 am), and should show every single runner in the race, except the wheelchair racers and the elite women (sorry, I didn't get it set up in time for those!). The first group you see is the elite men, followed by 24,000 runners.
