Be Fueled by Idealism for 26.2 Miles

City Year Los Angeles is an official charity partner of the 2017 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. For the past two years, our team has raised more than $20,000 to support our in-school service. We want YOU to join our team and here’s why:

Top 5 Reasons to Join Team City Year Los Angeles!

#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. Team slots are very limited so sign up soon!

#4. Great way to meet other people who care about education and enjoy running at our bi-monthly runs and gathering.

#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 regular runs.

#1. The funds you raise will make an impact in the lives of students. We’ve got the results to show for it!
