Our Impact

Since 1989, more than 66,000 students have participated in Students Run LA (SRLA). The growth of the program has only increased its success. Each year:

  • More than 95% of the students who start the marathon, finish the full 26.2 mile course.
  • In 2018, more than 650 seniors completed the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon; 99% of them graduated from high school in June, and 95% of them have plans to go to college. 485+ are first-generation to attend college!

SRLA students participated in a pre and post season survey for the 2017-2018 season. Comparing results highlighted how their habits changed over time:

SRLA students incorporated more exercise into their daily lives during the course of the SRLA season.

Even after the SRLA program ended, 92% of responding students reported being “likely” or “very likely” to continue exercising.

After training with SRLA, students made better food choices by consuming less fast food and soda and eating more fruits and vegetables. 

The SRLA program empowered 87% of responding students to incorporate healthy habits into their everyday lives to a moderate or significant degree, leading to a healthier lifestyle overall.
