The Story

Stadium to the Sea.


Say just those four words, and runners across the United States will immediately 
know what you•re referring to: the iconic course of the ASICS LA Marathon, which is set for its 29th edition on March 9, 2014.

 

The ASICS LA Marathon has always been about much more than an invitational race for elite runners over the city’s streets. Since its inception in 1986, it has offered opportunities for involvement for athletic expression at all levels, for giving back to the community and for celebrating the unique nature of the communities all over the Los Angeles region.

 

In 2010, Marathon charities set an all-time record of $2 million in donations. The 
enormous success led to the creation of the Marathon’s Charity Challenge, which 
called upon fundraisers to set a new record of $3 million in donations in 2011. 
Contributions passed the $1 million mark in mid-February 2011, the earliest date 
ever, and charities ultimately reached the $3 million mark for that year’s race. For 
the 2012 race, total charity contributions reached $3,023,326 and in 2013 the 
numbers continued to rise, with all-time high charity participation totaling over 70 
charities raising over 3.1 million dollars. 


For the 2014 race, 91 marathon-recognized charities will be raising awareness of
their activities. They have pledged to set an even higher fundraising record of $4 
million.
