Announcements and Upcoming Events
The LA Road Runners training season for the LA Marathon kicked off at the totem pole on Saturday, September 14th!
Because the LA Running Club is now an affiliate club in partnership with Conqur Endurance Group for the 2019-2020 training season, as a current member of the LA Running Club, you can train with LARR through LARC and receive Corral E on marathon day and enjoy the benefits of training with LARR pace leaders.
Conqur seeks to strengthen the greater Los Angeles running community by partnering with clubs around the LA area, providing new training tools and activation opportunities focused around Conqur events.
In addition to six large scale meet-up training runs, affiliate clubs will host live and virtual championship events utilizing the Zwift platform. Two meet-up training runs will be held at Dodger Stadium.
LARC will also have a cheer tent on marathon day along the marathon course.
If you are interested and haven’t yet signed up or renewed your membership in The LA Running Club, you may do so in person at the totem pole or on track night, or by clicking this link: Join LARC
In addition, LARC will get entries into the LA Marathon that we will raffle off over the next couple of months to members only. You must be present to win.
We will continue to provide tent support and gels, Gatorade, water and snacks to our athletes. We will keep out a donations jar and will appreciate your generosity.
We are excited for this opportunity but want to make sure everyone understands that the following are NOT included in the LARC/LARR affiliation:
1. Exclusive LARR discounts
2. Zwift Foot Pod
3. LARR training shirt
4. Access to the locker room at the Pasadena Half Marathon
5. Access to the Loge Level at Dodger Stadium on Marathon day
6. Corral B
Those benefits are available only by registering with the LA Road Runners https://www.lamarathon.com/participant-info/larr
Thank you for supporting the LA Running Club as we continue to grow and expand opportunities for our members and the running community.

Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights
You can find us every Saturday morning at 7 AM at the totem pole in Santa Monica located near the intersection of Ocean Ave. and San Vicente Blvd. There is free parking on Georgina Ave. or Marguerita Ave. (1 or 2 blocks south of San Vicente). Whether you run, run/walk or walk, we have a group for you.
In addition, every Wednesday night at 6:30 pm we have coached track workouts at Santa Monica High School. The track program includes four levels: interval, repetition, track light, and walking. If you are unsure of which group to join, please speak to one of our coaches when you arrive. SAMOHI is located at Pico Blvd. and 4th St. Please park in the residential neighborhoods around the school.
Refer a friend to join LARC who has never joined before and you receive a free pair of socks, a muscle massage stick or shirt (from a previous year) while supplies last!
