Completing a marathon or half-marathon is a life-changing event and getting there can be daunting.  Take the first step by attending the L.A. LEGGERS New Member Orientation [2022 dates to be announced, typically late July].

Sessions take place at Tongva Park in Santa Monica. Directions>>

Dress to run or walk a mile, and make sure you bring water.  You’ll get a chance to:

  • Learn about the L.A. LEGGERS and how our training program works.
  • Do a trial mile and get guidance on which pace group works best for you.
  • Meet your pace-group mentors.
  • Pick up your shirt, if you’ve already signed up to join the L.A. LEGGERS (*please note, this season, we will be mailing t-shirts to all members)

If you are a walker, you’ll also get an overview of how the L.A. LEGGERS program works for walkers.

We strongly encourage new members to attend, but if you can’t make it to either date, don’t worry. Just show up for Opening Day at 6:45 am [2022 date to be announced, typically early August]. Before you come, read these guidelines:
