The Los Angeles Running Club (LARC) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that unites runners and walkers in Southern California. In addition to competing in numerous races, we offer year-round training runs, an interval training track night, recreational and travel activities, and social gatherings. We’re dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and enduring friendships.  

Saturdays include tent support, snacks and refreshments, interesting speakers, networking, social and charitable events, and getting connected with others in the running community.

Take in the beautiful sites while running/walking along the oceanfront or get in a more challenging hill workout, all while enjoying ocean breezes.
