The ASICS LA Marathon Official Charity program is a unique opportunity to increase awareness, engage supporters and raise funds for your organization!

Goal: $4,000,000

Currently Raised: $2,123,707.00

The ASICS LA Marathon is committed to improving the community by offering nonprofits a chance to use our world-class event in order to increase awareness and raise funds for your cause through our Official Charity Program. It is YOUR COURSE. YOUR CAUSE.

Each of our partner organization's missions and clients are special and unique – just like our 25,000 runners and our amazing 26.2 mile marathon course. This program is your chance to give back and show the greater Los Angeles area who you are and what you stand for! Over the next 8 months the ASICS LA Marathon will transform into Your Course, and you will run it to support Your Cause.
