Charity 2-Person Marathon Relay (each person runs a HALF marathon)

1. Register with us as a fundraiser (at imATHLETE website)

You need to register as a fundraiser before registering for the marathon relay. http://www.imathelete.com/donate/2013LAMarathonTeamToberman.

2. Register for the 2-Person Charity Marathon Relay  (run or walk HALF of the LA Marathon)

This special option is only available for runners or walkers who are registered as a fundraiser with an official charity (like us!). Once both team members have registered as fundraisers contact us to receive a special code and link that you will use to register your team for the relay. If you’re ready to register for the relay but don’t have a partner, we will put you on a waiting list and try to match you up with someone.

How does the 2-Person Marathon Relay Work?
This is an exciting event that allows you to just run HALF of the LA Marathon (the LA Marathon does not have a half-marathon component that is open to the public, so this is an exclusive event)!  You find a partner and decide who will run the first half and who will run the second half.  The first person starts at Dodger Stadium with all of the rest of the marathon runners and walkers.  Then, at mile 13.1 there is a special transition zone where the first person stops and the second person begins.  The second person then runs or walks the second half of the marathon course (13.1 miles) and finishes at the regular finish line in Santa Monica.  Each person gets a medal, and bus transportation is provided to get runners/walkers to their appropriate starting and ending points.

If you have any questions about registration, training, or the various event options,
