Application Process


The structure of the Official Charity Program is simple – nonprofit organizations recruit supporters, friends, family etc. to train for and run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, or the LA Big 5K while raising funds for their organization! It is the responsibility of the charity to recruit and manage the team, ensure each team member is engaged and connected to their cause and meets their fundraising goal. In turn, the Conqur Endurance Group puts on a world-class event and provides support, guidance and marketing opportunities along the way.

We select partner charities through a competitive application process. Please review the application checklist to ensure your organization is eligible. All partner charities must:
