May is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Awareness Month.

Approximately 5,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year, which averages to about 15 new cases each day.

Back in March 2021, The McCourt Foundation hosted our annual Educational Update to help support ALS research. Physicians at Massachusetts General Hospital joined us to discuss the latest research and the new hopes in ALS clinical trials and novel approaches for clinical care. TMF continues to invest in neurological research at our hospital partners in Boston and Los Angeles

Paul Pilkington entered the 1994 Los Angeles Marathon as the "rabbit", an athlete paid only to set a fast pace and block the wind for the better runners. But with nearly a two-minute lead and 10 miles remaining, Pilkington’s legs had other ideas. On this day the rabbit would pull a marathon out of his hat. Shocking elite runners by refusing to quit as expected, Pilkington led from start to finish to win in 2:12:13. The women's race was won by new American citizen Olga Appell in 2:28:12.

On one of the hottest days in race history, the runners in the 1993 Los Angeles Marathon found themselves in a battle against the heat. Muhammad Ali was on hand to start the race which was witnessed by an estimated one million spectators. The temperature had reached 87 degrees by 1pm, just four hours into the marathon. The conditions proved challenging to even the best. Brazil’s Joseildo Rocha da Silva won the men’s race in a time of 2:14:28, while the Ukraine’s Lyubov Klochko won the women’s division in 2:39:49, with both of the winning times the slowest in race history.

Meet Jeremy Caplan:

Jeremy learned about The McCourt Foundation and Team TMF while looking at the registration options for the 2021 LA Marathon. "I am extremely excited to use my passion for running as an opportunity to raise awareness and support for a cause that is close to my heart. My grandfather, Edwin H. Caplan, passed away on November 23, 2020 at the age of 94 years old. During the last couple of years of his life, Ed suffered from Alzheimer's disease. As an experienced marathoner, the Los Angeles Marathon has been on my to-do list for several years now. When I learned of The McCourt Foundation's (TMF) involvement in this race, I immediately had the desire to run for Team TMF in memory of my grandfather, Edwin H. Caplan."

Jeremy has already raised $865 for TMF. His goal is to finish the race in 3:30. He is looking forward to running past the Walt Disney Concert Hall - "I have so many memories of my grandfather associated with Disney, music, and orchestra. I know he will be with me when I pass this landmark."

An estimated 250,000 spectators took to the streets to cheer on the thousands of runners in the 1991 Los Angeles Marathon. Mark Plaatjes had come to America from South Africa in 1988 seeking political asylum. After heart break in the previous years of the race, 1991 was the moment he would finally break through for an emotional victory in a time of 2:10:29. The women's race record was broken by winner Cathy O'Brien in 2:29:38, leading nearly the entire race, setting the pace on a warm and humid day.

In 1990 Students Run LA (SRLA) was officially born. Two dozen teachers from around the city joined the three co-founders, with students from their respective schools, and together, they all ran in the 5th LA Marathon. Since that time more than 70,000 students have participated in the program with the vast majority graduating high school and many going onto college and successful careers. The McCourt Foundation is proud to continue our support of SRLA and over 3,000 students each year who challenge themselves to change their lives by running a marathon.

Temperatures were in the low 70's for the 1989 Los Angeles Marathon. Just under 19,000 participants crossed the start line wearing stretch pants, skimpy shorts, sleeveless shirts or even no shirts at all. 💪 They were supported by thousands of volunteers and an estimated one million onlookers who provided moral support. The Soviet Union's Zoya Ivanova beat Olympic gold medalist Rosa Mota for the women's title, while Art Boileau repeated his victory from two years earlier to claim victory in the men's race.

Hello from Germany. When is the new marathon date for 2022? stay healthy
Bring back Stadium to the Sea!!!
#2021LAMarathonMovedToFall2021 Well for those of us that were planning on running the LA Marathon in May of this year it has been moved to fall! Don't know exactly when according to them message below but sometime in the fall of 2021! Seems that everything is starting to move to the fall time frame! It's going to be a busy fall if we get to enjoy it.
Nice little workout today. Yes to me.
Is it still possible to switch Rose Bowl 5K registration to Virtual? Not feeling comfortable running in person with the covid situation in Southern Cali.
Los Angeles Marathon 2011 ... just before the finish line ...
#LAMarathon2021 Okay you LA marathon runners out there, as you have heard or maybe have not heard, the Los Angeles marathon is being postponed until 21 May 2021 from its usual running in March! And there is a new course to boot! I don't think it'll be called The Stadium to the Sea anymore, but excited in either case. The marathons will now be ending in Century City instead of Santa Monica.
I guess that the 2021 marathon will unfortunately not take place :-(. Greetings from germany. STAY HEALTHY
