Urban Compass has been selected as an official charity partner of the 2018 LA BIG 5K and Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon! Come run LA with us and support our kids and programs! We are creating our LA BIG 5K team now!

The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is committed to improving the community by offering nonprofits the opportunity to use its world-class event to increase awareness and raise funds for their causes through the Official Charity Program. It truly is…YOUR COURSE. YOUR CAUSE. This program is a chance for nonprofits to show the cities of the greater Los Angeles area who they are and what they stand for. Join Team Urban Compass and help guide youth toward a hopeful future!



5K Registration available! You MUST register with us first, and not through the event page. There is a special registration page just for awesome charity supporters!

Runners, walkers, corporate teams, high school student groups, college teams, stroller parents, and kids of all ages are welcome to join us as we take on 3.1 miles to raise awareness and raise funds for Urban Compass!

  • A great opportunity to run for an awesome cause working to make change for youth in Watts and Pico-Union!
