(IJ Review) – The Los Angeles Marathon was held Sunday, starting at Dodger Stadium, winding through downtown L.A. and Hollywood, and finishing in Santa Monica. Part of the uniqueness of the course is the entertainment and spectacle along the route.

Guerrilla street artist Sabo added a little something extra for this year’s participants:

Each of the sixteen posters copied the style of the marketing materials for the race. Here’s the logo from the race organizers:

FAX BLAST SPECIAL: Impeach Obama NOW!
