RUNNERS NEEDED FOR MARATHON,
1/2 MARATHON, OR 5 K!

Do you know any runners? Are you a runner? Please forward this email to them and ask them to join Team Reading to Kids in the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 8th!

We're looking for six more full marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.

If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team!

If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, 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 Los Angeles Marathon website.
