Achilles LA

we're back!!!
After a two-year pause due to COVID, we are back! Starting October 2, 2022, join us on the first Sunday of each month!

We Change Lives Everyday



Achilles LA is a local branch of Achilles International. For more than twenty-five years, Achilles Los Angeles was among the forty Achilles chapters across the United States. The club became inactive in 2007. But in the fall of 2017, with the help of the founding LA chapter leader Jon Ross, Ed Gargiulo and Peter Sheehy teamed up to relaunch Achilles Los Angeles.  



The mission of Achilles International - and Achilles LA - is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement.

Achilles programs focus on running, but the truth is, running is simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.
