Join us on Sunday, August 7th for LARC’s inaugural Summer Dayz 5K! Enjoy a run or walk along scenic Santa Monica beach and soak up the summer vibes! All participants will receive a medal, post-race snacks, and some surprise swag.


LARC is partnering with Marathon Goddess Julie Weiss in fundraising for the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. LARC will donate $11 for each race registrant to the Hirshberg Foundation. Why $11? Julie is currently running 11 marathons in 11 months to illuminate the fact that the current survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 11%.


This is a family-friendly fun run that is clock timed (not chip timed). It will be a loop course on the beach path (open course), with a marked turnaround and a water station. Here is the link to the course map

LARC/Conqur Endurance Group Affiliation

LARR/LARC Affiliation
The LA Road Runners training season for the LA Marathon kicked off at the totem pole on Saturday, September 14th!

Because the LA Running Club is now an affiliate club in partnership with Conqur Endurance Group for the 2019-2020 training season, as a current member of the LA Running Club, you can train with LARR through LARC and receive Corral E on marathon day and enjoy the benefits of training with LARR pace leaders. 

Conqur seeks to strengthen the greater Los Angeles running community by partnering with clubs around the LA area, providing new training tools and activation opportunities focused around Conqur events.

In addition to six large scale meet-up training runs, affiliate clubs will host live and virtual championship events utilizing the Zwift platform.  Two meet-up training runs will be held at Dodger Stadium.

LARC will also have a cheer tent on marathon day along the marathon course.

If you are interested and haven’t yet signed up or renewed your membership in The LA Running Club, you may do so in person at the totem pole or on track night, or by clicking this link: Join LARC

In addition, LARC will get entries into the LA Marathon that we will raffle off over the next couple of months to members only.  You must be present to win.

We will continue to provide tent support and gels, Gatorade, water and snacks to our athletes.  We will keep out a donations jar and will appreciate your generosity.  

We are excited for this opportunity but want to make sure everyone understands that the following are NOT included in the LARC/LARR affiliation:

1. Exclusive LARR discounts
2. Zwift Foot Pod
3. LARR training shirt
4. Access to the locker room at the Pasadena Half Marathon
5. Access to the Loge Level at Dodger Stadium on Marathon day
6. Corral B

Those benefits are available only by registering with the LA Road Runners

Welcome our new sponsor Dr. Kazu Suzuki

NS team & LARC Press release
Dear members,
Dr. Kazu Suzuki has been appointed as a medical advisor to our running club. 
For our members, he will be providing the first aid, such as treatment of minor cuts and scrapes, minor allergic reaction and ankle sprains etc. He is an experienced foot and ankle surgeon, and he can advise you on running related questions and injuries as needed. He is an active member of the club and he will be present at Saturday Totem-pole meetings and Wednesday track nights on most days. 
Most importantly, he will have an EKG device and an AED device which is a heart defibrillator device that can be life-saving when a person has a cardiac arrest and collapses. Although it’s rare, cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, including a seemingly healthy runner. You may have heard a 29-year-old Danish professional soccer player (Christian Eriksen) collapsed during a Euro tournament match in June 2021. Fortunately, Eriksen was resuscitated with AED, sent to a hospital for a pace maker and survived, solely because he had an immediate medical attention.
Kazu is a native of Tokyo Japan. He is a Boston marathon qualifier/finisher and an Ironman finisher. He is an attending staff of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since 2006 & has a private practice clinic in West Hollywood. He also welcomes your running or health-related questions via email (, which may be featured in our weekly emails and in our website.
