About Students Run LA

Students Run LA is perhaps the most perfect 501c3 charitable organization to support as a runner in Los Angeles.  Since 1993, SRLA has successfully carried out the same teacher-led training program, to challenge at-risk secondary students to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring and improved health by providing them with a truly life-changing experience: the training for and completion of the Los Angeles Marathon.  What started with one teacher and his handful of students has grown to more than 500 leaders and 3,200 students from 175 schools and community programs throughout the greater Los Angeles area. 

NEW Start Location - Pecan Grove Picnic Area in Griffith Park

The start location is NEW this year. We will stage the race from the PECAN GROVE PICNIC AREA. Please click the link below to see a map of the park. Pecan Grove is just a bit northwest of the Zoo & Autry. If you are a returning runner, DO NOT go to the location where we started last'll be all alone and sad if you do :)

More Details/Aids Stations

ALL RACES will start at 7:30 AM. Packet pick-up will be race morning. There will be no raceday registration.

Water/Aid stations: there will be a water/aid station at the start/finish and two stations on the course. Because it is an out & back course, you will pass water/aid stations several times, depending on which distance you are running.
