City Year Los Angeles is an official charity partner of the LA Marathon. Last year, our team raised over $10,000 to support our in-school service. We are currently recruiting runners for our 2016 LA Marathon team. Here's why you should join us:

Top 5 Reasons to Join City Year's LA Marathon Team!

#5. Get in shape! Training for a marathon will give your health and fitness levels a boost. Don’t want to run a full marathon? Not a problem! Grab a friend and run the two-person charity relay.

#4. Join our inaugural Associates Club team and meet new people who care about education and enjoy running at our bi-monthly runs and gatherings. 

#3. Be a role model like our AmeriCorps members! Crossing the finish line will inspire others to do something they thought was too tough or impossible.  

#2. You’re not doing this alone. We’ll support you every step of the way with your fundraising and training.

#1. The LA Marathon is taking place on Valentine's Day! Be our Valentine and help us continue to make an impact in the lives of our students. We’ve got the results to show for it!

So, now that you’re convinced. . . 

As a member of the team you are expected to:

  • Raise a minimum of $650 for City Year Los Angeles
  • Pay a registration fee: Marathon $170 per person
  • 2-Person Charity Relay: $275 per team
  • Be in L.A. on February 14, 2016 for the ASICS L.A. Marathon! The race starts at Dodger Stadium and concludes at the Santa Monica Pier.
