This is an 18-mile run open to SRLA participants and the community. It is designed to be a training run for the ASICS LA Marathon, with a course that makes use of inclines, declines and a two mile stretch that will give runners an idea that at some point during any run, you will have to look at your community for help when you want to give up.
All participants will receive a t-shirt and finisher’s medal upon completion of the event. Bibs will be distributed on race day starting at 6:30AM. Overall awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers, and age group awards will be given to the top three male and female in each division (12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75 & over). Online 18-mile race registration fee is $60.00, event day registration will be $75.00. Online registration closes on Tuesday, 1/28/14 at 11:59 pm.
This year we are offering the ‘Community Loop To Support You’ 15K (~9.3 miles) option with a registration fee of $40; event day registration will be $50. Online registration for the 15K also closes on Tuesday, 1/28/14 at 11:59 pm. The purpose of this 15K is to highlight the fact that this 18-mile race is the last training run before the ASICS LA Marathon date and we want our student runners to feel a strong community of runners supporting them a month before the big day. Unfortunately, there will be no overall or age group awards given for the one loop distance.
