We're looking for one more marathon runner to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.

You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team! If you are interested or want to learn more, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org!

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.
