As runners leave Beverly Hills and head toward Mile 18, they are greeted by over 600 hundred local cheerleaders making noise to encourage runners get to the Finish Line of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. Cheer Alley is the Pep Rally of the Year, and is comprised of Middle and High School cheerleaders from across Southern California.
This is the fifth year of the competition and each squad will perform their 2-minute routine, and then will line the course to cheer on runners. Squads will be judged on overall spirit, creativity, showmanship and uniform.
If you are interested in having your Cheer or Dance team compete in the upcoming Cheer Alley and Competition at the 2017 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, please provide your information below and you will be notified when the application becomes available.
