As runners leave Beverly Hills and head toward Mile 18, they are greeted by over 600 hundred local cheerleaders making noise to encourage runners get to the Finish Line of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. Cheer Alley is the Pep Rally of the Year, and is comprised of Middle and High School cheerleaders from across Southern California.

2018 will be the 6th year of the competition and each squad will perform their 2-minute routine, and then will line the course to cheer on runners. Squads are judged on overall spirit, creativity, showmanship, and uniform, during the two-part competition. In addition to serving the community, each member of all participating squads is rewarded with a special gift. The top three teams will be awarded cash prizes:

1st Place: $1,250

2nd Place: $750

3rd Place: $500
