On Saturday, September 11th Real Medicine Foundation helped kick off the start of The L.A. Roadrunner’s 2010-2011 training season leading up to the LA Marathon.  Official Charities participating in the 2011 LA Marathon area were invited to provide information and recruit marathon runners for their charity at this year’s event. LA Roadrunners is the official training program for the Honda LA Marathon and the group meets for 26 weeks on Saturday mornings in Venice as well as the Inland Empire. Roadrunners boasts a phenomenal race day finisher’s rate of 99% and last year’s program sold out with over 1500 runners training, and since 1990 has helped nearly 30,000 people cross the finish line. With an average of 53% of all runners attempting a marathon for the very first time, training programs such as the LA Roadrunners are exciting and important tools for helping runners meet their goals.

Ginger Williams from the LA Marathon did a fantastic job in organizing this year’s event. Steady streams of runners began appearing around 7am, and were encouraged to learn more information about this year’s participating charities. The Real Medicine Foundation Booth and it’s volunteers provided runner’s with information about our projects across the globe, along with our incentive programs for RMF’s LA Marathon Real Athletes team.
