New Member Orientation

Completing a marathon or half-marathon is a life-changing event and getting there can be daunting. We offer a new member orientation at the beginning of each season (typically late July/early August).

Sessions take place at Tongva Park in the ampitheater in Santa Monica.

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.
  • Complete a trial mile and get guidance on which pace group works best for you.
  • Meet your pace-group mentors.

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 and returning members to attend. Before you come, read these guidelines: How to Pick the Right Pace Group.
