This 14.5 foot beauty took, named "STOOPIDTALL," took 12 hours to make. Truly this enthusiast went above and beyond the call of duty.

The Best Places to Watch the L.A. Marathon This Sunday

This Sunday, L.A. Marathon will transform the city into a 26.2-mile street festival. Here's where to watch it and how to support its runners.



This Sunday, the Los Angeles Marathon will transform a 26.2-mile corridor of L.A. into the city's largest street festival. Even if you're not running from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica Pier, you can still enjoy the car-less streets. Live bands will be playing at almost every mile, and neighbors will be out cheering on their spandex-clad fellow citizens. And while the marathoners keep running, you can have a leisurely brunch. Here's where to watch the race, and a few ways you can help support these civic-minded runners.

Watch the Unofficial Marathon: Head to the course after the bars close on Saturday night to see bikers from Wolfpack Hustle navigate the already-closed streets in their annual "crash race." The ride starts at 3:00 a.m. at Dodger Stadium and heads west all the way to the sea. Check out last year's video here. Truly amazing.
