Run with Team Reading to Kids in the 2024 Los Angeles Marathon to be held on Sunday, March 17, 2024

Be a part of Team Reading to Kids as you run in one of the best marathons in the country. 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!

Our full marathon spots are all taken, but you can run 13.1 miles of the Charity Half Marathon - a course between Dodger Stadium and the finish line in Century City, without all of the hills of the full Los Angeles Marathon. This is an exclusive opportunity to participate without having to run the entire route!

If that distance is 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 16, 2024.

If you are interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, contact Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org to receive further information on the simple registration process for becoming a fundraising runner.

IMPORTANT NOTE: to register to run on behalf of Reading to Kids, you MUST receive from us a special web address to use when registering on the Los Angeles Marathon website.

Below is a slideshow of our 2023 runners before, during, and after the Big 5K and marathon!
