L.A. Marathon: Let the chase begin

The elite men took off at 7:43 a.m. in the L.A. Marathon.

During a news conference on Friday, the majority of them said their goal was to beat the women and win the $100,000 gender challenge. The women were given a 17-minute, 3-second handicap.

The women just passed through Chinatown and are on their way to Little Tokyo.
