Run with Team Reading to Kids in the 2019 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 24th!

Be a part of Team Reading to Kids as you run in one of the best marathons in the country. Click here to see our Facebook group, and click the play button below for a video of why we run!



By joining our team, your commitment will help inspire children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success. The dollars you raise will go to support our monthly reading clubs!

You can either run the entire marathon or run just the last 13.2 miles of the course as the Charity Challenge - an exclusive opportunity to participate without having to run the entire route!

If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the LA Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) starting and ending at Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019.


If you are interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, contact Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org to receive further information on the simple registration process for becoming a fundraising runner.

IMPORTANT NOTE: to register to run on behalf of Reading to Kids, you MUST receive from us a special web address to use when registering on the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon website.


Below is a slideshow of our 2018 runners before, during, and after the marathon!
