Los Angeles Roadrunners Information

Welcome to the 2006 Los Angeles Marathon Roadrunners Training Program. The official training program for the City of Los Angeles Marathon. As a member of the Los Angeles Roadrunners you will receive a comprehensive training program to prepare you for the 2006 Los Angeles Marathon. The LA Roadrunners meet every Saturday morning at 7AM in Venice at Westminster Avenue School. The training program consists of 5 days of training. The LA Roadrunners ONLY meet on Saturday, however, the other four days you will train on your own with the schedule that we provide you with. Most Saturdays after group training runs there will be speakers on site to discuss health, exercise, fitness, and other issues related to your training. At the training runs there will be water stations, Gatorade and fresh fruit awaiting you at the finish. Registered Roadrunners also receive discounted registration fees for official training races.


#1 Marathon Training Program In The Country

Rod Dixon has been brought on board as Director of Coaching.  Dixon, an Olympic bronze medalist whose come from behind win at the 1983 New York City Marathon is one of the most memorable in history, will build on the legacy of Roadrunners’ success by offering “professional marathon training for the everyday athlete.”  Pat Connelly also returns for his 16th year as a coach.  Bob Hickey returns as our walking coach.  Tracie Bruneau joins us as your L.A. Roadrunners Coordinator to attend to the logistics of the program. 

We are excited to offer a special leadership role for our returning veterans as volunteer Group Pace Leaders. Each Leader will set the pace for a group based on projected finishing time and train together toward that goal. Challenge yourself to train for a personal best or train at your comfortable pace. Either way, you will get back as much as you give in the form of the camaraderie and support you will enjoy throughout the training and on race day by volunteering to become Group Pace Leader. To help you along the way, we have added a training journal and bulletin board to allow you to track your progress and compare experiences with your fellow Roadrunners.  With the support of the coaching staff, this year’s L.A. Roadrunners program promises to be the best ever. We look forward to sharing this program with you and seeing you at the L.A. Marathon finish line on race day.
