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 31st edition on March 19, 2017. 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.
2017 Marks Train 4 Autism's 10 Year Anniversary. This season we will be celebrating with another year of team training, fundraising, and supporting our cause and community. Please join us as we train together for the 26.2 or the 13. mile charity relay.
As in previous years with the LA Marathon, Train 4 Autism Foundation benefits Aurelia Foundation's programs. We have worked with this amazing program for several years and supported their efforts. In the video below you'll get to learn about their program and staff. At the 5:00 point you'll see a van they were able to purchase with the funds generated through Train 4 Autism and the LA Marathon campaign.
