For the 2015 LA Marathon, ASICS, put on quite the show - a light show at a city scale. Using 124 spotlights at 27 locations along the entire 26.2 mile LA Marathon course, the city was a glow. Sitting high above the city at the Runyon Canyon overlook afforded a view of the entire spectacle. From DTLA to the pier in Santa Monica, you could see each and every spotlight origin with associated vertical beam of light. Even as the East Coast of the US is deep in late-winter doldrums, LA was rolling out the red carpet for the event. Visibility was high and a swath of high-level clouds acted as the canvas for the beaming lights. Standing shoulder to shoulder with throngs of other fascinated Angelenos, taking in the vast scale of this event was truly an epic welcome to the 2015 LA Marathon - thank you ASICS.
