The weather was perfect, the times were not--at least, not in the minds of the organizers of the 13th annual Los Angeles Marathon, who had hoped that a pack of elite runners in Sunday's race would shatter records and catapult the event into the top tier of the world's marathons. The pack ran fast, well ahead of more than 19,000 others celebrating a journey through the city's neighborhoods as well as the glorious views of snow-topped mountains on a cool, crisp spring morning.

The Metropolitan Transit authority is tunneling under Hollywood Boulevard to run a subway, but better the Corps of Engineers is turned loose on the street. Level those hills. Smooth out the pavement, because it's the only way somebody is going to run a sub-2-hour 10-minute Los Angeles Marathon. Edition XIII on Sunday showed what happens when a legitimate elite field tackles the course.

Today's 14th running of the Los Angeles Marathon will be televised by Channel 13, which begins coverage at 8 a.m., 45 minutes before the start of the race. The men's field is expected to be dominated by Africans, led by Simon Bor and Chris Cheboiboch of Kenya and Moges Taye of Ethiopia. The "elite" group will be chasing the event record of 2 hours 10 minutes 19 seconds, set by Martin Mondragon of Mexico in 1988. Last year's winner, Zebedayo Bayo of Tanzania, finished in 2:11:21.

The Los Angeles Marathon course, twice changed in recent years to, first, move the start and finish lines from the Coliseum to downtown and, second, to reverse the course in an effort to make it faster, is going to get another look. Race President Bill Burke said Sunday that he will ask Ann Roberts, who recruits the elite field, and operations people to take a look at the course, with particular attention to the miles 16-20.

It was easier to size up the field in 1986, and running in the new race made sense for Ric Sayre, even if it was held only five weeks after he won the Long Beach Marathon. "I was in good shape, and except for three or four runners, I didn't see a real exceptional field," he said. "It looked like I could place in the top five for a payday." His payday was $10,000, plus a car, for winning the first Los Angeles Marathon, a race that anticipated 2,500 runners and found itself with 10,787.

Lornah Kiplagat experienced a breakthrough in last year's Los Angeles Marathon, but returned home to Kenya with a tainted victory. On Sunday, she finally--and joyously--got to break the tape. Kiplagat, 23, won the women's race in 2 hours, 34 minutes, 3 seconds and became only the second winner to defend a title in the Los Angeles Marathon's 13-year history.
