SRLA Students Training for the LA Marathon
SRLA Students Training for the LA Marathon

The middle and high school students of Students Run LA (SRLA) are well into their training for the LA Marathon next March.  They have been running with their volunteer teacher/leaders since August, and have already completed a 5K and a 10K race.  Along the way, they are learning that their hard work and perseverance will lead to success at these races, at the LA Marathon, and in life. 

We invite you to come out and run with them at their 15K race on Saturday, November 10th, on the back lot of Universal Studios.  The students will take on this challenging course three times to complete the distance of 15K.  You will have the option of running once, twice, or three times…YOUR CHOICE!

The price for this race is $30 per runner. Online registration is available on our web site, or directly at You may consider supporting two (or more) of our students in this race for another $30.  If you do not want to run with the students, you may choose to simply support our students with your contribution of $30, $60, $120, or more.  A donation of $300 will support one student for the entire season!

We hope you will choose to participate in this first-ever “Run With SRLA Day” and help our students on their way to the LA Marathon and a better life!
