About The Event
The Race for Recognition.
LA2DC is a cross country cycling and running event that pushes the participants’ physical limitations in an act of remembrance and tribute to all those communities that have felt the pain of persecution. The Armenian Genocide is one of many that has been ignored on the global scale, and by demanding recognition, millions of silent survivors will gain a voice.
A 2,800 Mile Journey
Delivering the message to STOP World Genocide & Recognize the Armenian Genocide.
Beginning April 24, 2015, cyclists and runners will set out from Los Angeles to kick-off the marathon, each carrying the relay baton symbolizing the countless voices of the silenced, asking that all nations including the United States unite to STOP WORLD GENOCIDE AND RECOGNIZE THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE.
Over the course of two weeks, 60+ athletes will make the approximately 2,800 mile journey across our nation in an effort to deliver LA2DC’s message to our nation’s capital.
*The entire event will be filmed and later made into a documentary
