2021 Los Angeles Marathon

Glioblastoma Foundation is proud to be an Official Charity Partner of the 2021 Sketchers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. On May 23, 2021, participants will run from "the stadium to the sea." The 26.2 mile marathon course starts at Dodger Stadium and passes by iconic Los Angeles landmarks including Disney Hall and Music Center, Rodeo Drive, Chinatown, and more before finishing on Ocean Avenue alongside the Pacific Ocean.


New in 2021

LA Big 5k! 

This year you can run in the LA Big 5K if you aren't quite up to running the full marathon! The 5K is a fun way to participate in the marathon without running the full 26 miles. 

The Marathon Goes Virtual! 

This year, due to COVID-19, you have the option of running virtually! Not sure about making the trek out to LA? Run in your hometown with your family and friends there to cheer you on!
