Can I push my special needs child in a stroller in the L.A. Marathon?

Victor Villarreal — Sep 22, 2016 08:54AM PDT

Hey guys,
I am wanting to know if I will be allowed to push my special needs (19 year old) child in his running stroller the Los Angeles Marathon? We have been allowed to do so in our local races (Salt Lake City) but nothing as big as this race. I was informed that some race directors require racing joggers (stoller) for such a request to be granted. Also, I'd like to know if he would need to be registered as a participant as well.

Thanks for getting in touch with us. While imATHLETE provides a technology platform that facilitates online registration, your inquiry would be best answered by the event organizers over at the LA Marathon. They should be able to provide you with more information on their course policies. If you’d like, you can contact them directly at:
