Click here to see our Facebook group, and click the play button below for a video of why we run!
By joining our team, your commitment will help inspire children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success. The dollars you raise will go to support our monthly reading clubs!
You can either run the entire marathon or run just the last 13.1 miles of the course as the Charity Challenge - an exclusive opportunity to participate without having to run the entire route!
If either of those distances are too daunting, you can join us in the LA Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) starting and ending at Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
