Announcements and Upcoming Events


In light of the current Coronavirus situation and the mandates from our local government, the LA Running Club has decided to suspend activities both on Saturday mornings at the totem pole and Wednesday nights at Santa Monica high school through the end of March. We will plan to resume on Saturday April 4th. However we will monitor the situation closely and advise you if something changes.

You as our members and friends are our utmost priority. Please stay healthy and take care of one another.  Coach David Levine will post individual workouts on our Social Media pages. Please check them often.

Congratulations to all the 2020 LA Marathon participants and finishers.  What a great race with great weather,  We look forward to getting together for our annual Medal Run Celebration when we return next month.    

Please refer to our local LA mayor's directives as well as the CDC (click on the links below).

Please read the following article about How to Run Safely Amid Coronavius Concerns.

Thank you.

Board and Coaches of the LA Running Club




Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights

You can find us every Saturday morning at 7 AM at the totem pole in Santa Monica located near the intersection of Ocean Ave. and San Vicente Blvd. There is free parking on Georgina Ave. or Marguerita Ave. (1 or 2 blocks south of San Vicente). Whether you run, run/walk or walk, we have a group for you.  

In addition, every Wednesday night at 6:30 pm we have coached track workouts  at Santa Monica High School. The track program includes four levels: interval, repetition, track light, and walking. If you are unsure of which group to join, please speak to one of our coaches when you arrive. SAMOHI is located at Pico Blvd. and 4th St.  Please park in the residential neighborhoods around the school.


Refer a friend to join LARC who has never joined before and you receive a free pair of socks, a muscle massage stick or shirt (from a previous year) while supplies last!
