The ASICS LA Marathon features dozens of points of entertainment along the course!


The ASICS LA Marathon is known for its start-to-finish entertainment program to encourage runners and to celebrate the city's diversity. More than 25 bands, 600+ cheerleaders, 4 entertainment centers and nearly half of the Official Charities will have programs on the course, celebrating the triumph of each marathoner.

There are many benefits to applying to join our entertainment lineup. First, you get to show your support for the 25,000+ hardworking runners. Many of our entertainers have shared with us that playing at the ASICS LA Marathon is their favorite event of the year, because they love to see how much they can encourage the runners! Your group will get the opportunity to participate in one of the largest events put on in Los Angeles each spring. Join the action and expose yourself to the thousands of runners while supporting the city we love! We are looking for high energy, positive, and fun entertainment groups who love early mornings.
