'Charity 2-Person Marathon' Makes its Debut!


The Honda LA Marathon is pleased to announce our newest event: the Charity 2-Person Marathon.  The Charity 2-Person Marathon will take place at the same time as the 2012 Honda LA Marathon, but you and a friend, family member, or co-worker will join forces as a team and each run a leg to complete the Marathon distance of 26.2 miles.


Entries into this inaugural event are limited and only available through one of our Official Charities.  For more information about the event and how to register, click here.
