Get ready to Rock Roll & Run!

Local elementary school students get ready to run in the 1K at the 2018 Rock Roll & Run for Education at LMU. This year’s race will take place on Saturday, March 9th.

Sign-ups are now open for the Second Annual Rock Roll & Run for Education presented by the LAX Coastal Education Foundation in partnership with Loyola Marymount University. The event will take place on Saturday, March 9 starting at 8 a.m. on the campus of LMU.

This timed fun run (with a music theme) brings together 21 local schools for a festive day of friendly-competition with the proceeds benefiting education. Last year, $60,000 was raised and organizers are hoping to surpass this number in 2019. More than just a race, the community event also features a race expo with community booths, free food,  giveaways, live music, a costume contest and more. Organizers also say there are a few new additions and surprises for the 2019 race.

The cost to participate in the 5K is $30 for adults and $25 for kids under 12. The cost to participate in the 1K (for kids 8 and under) is $20. The price goes up $5 on February 20 Can’t make it on race day but still want to participate? Sign-up as a virtual runner for $10, and you can select the school you’d like to support. The race company also charges a small fee when you register online.
