From fall to spring we see students continuously practicing to prepare for the 26.219 mile LA Marathon. These students are part of a non-profit organization called Students Run LA which provides a free school-based mentoring and physical fitness program. Throughout the school year they have practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:15-4:15 p.m. These student race through South Gate in preparation for the marathon.

SGHS Senior, Isela Rodriguez joined SRLA this year and upon completing the long race explains, “At the end of the marathon she felt relieved and that it was a big accomplishment.” She worked hard every day at practice because she knew her goal. “I never thought that I would be able to say I ran the LA Marathon.” Isela is extremely satisfied with herself and looks forward to take part in more marathons in the future.
