2nd Annual Treadmill Marathon To Take Place Sunday:

Santa Monica Sports Club president Blake Dirickson will run an entire marathon on one treadmill this Sunday as part of the 2nd Annual Treadmill Marathon.

It will take place at Busby’s East at 5364 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles (two blocks west of La Brea).

Doors open at 10 am, runners start at 11 am, and the party goes until 4 pm.

Organizers of the event said participants are running for recovery, resiliency and hope for a better life for all those affected by mental illness.

In 2012, Blake ran the FIRST annual #TreadmillMarathon after entertaining the idea of staging a marathon in a bar.

“Team Marathons” will also be running during the event in teams of 2-26 on additional treadmills stationed. The treadmills have been generously donated by Global Fitness, an international leader in the used fitness equipment market.

Hosted by Starstream Entertainment and Santa Monica Sports Club with special thanks to Hollywood Gym Rentals, the event will be held in the “nightclub” section of the bar and is open to the public.

Guests will pay for food and drinks with a fully stocked bar, breakfast and lunch menu with all proceeds going to NAMI. Additionally, all NFL football games will be showing.

There is free parking in the lot directly behind Busby’s.
