Community Affiliate Program Option

As a new option for nonprofits, we have created a DIY fundraising opportunity called the “Community Affiliate Program"*. This is a great opportunity for nonprofits who want to get their feet wet with endurance fundraising in 2018, and are too late applying for the Official Charity Program. Through this exciting opportunity you can gain experience recruiting runners, marketing your organization, coaching peer-to-peer fundraisers, and managing a team of runners!

Application Process


NOTE: The application process is closed, the following information is for reference only.

The structure of the Official Charity Program is simple – nonprofit organizations recruit supporters, friends, family etc. to train for and run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, or the LA Big 5K while raising funds for their organization! It is the responsibility of the charity to recruit and manage the team, ensure each team member is engaged and connected to their cause and meets their fundraising goal. In turn, the Conqur Endurance Group puts on a world-class event and provides support, guidance and marketing opportunities along the way.
