Manuel Blanco

Los Angeles / California / United States

36 years old

I am a California native and first time L.A. Marathon participant. Being from Los Angeles, I had always dreamt of running through this iconic city of mine, and experiencing its beauty through a different perspective.

As a member of the Skechers Performance apparel team, I have been able to witness first-hand the hard work and dedication that every Skechers employee commits to when presenting a new product to the world. It is with this pride that I will showcase our brand’s excitement through leadership and hard work.

Representing the U.S. as a Skechers runner is an exciting adventure for me and I plan to push my limits, conquer new challenges, and build a path to being an inspirational citizen of this planet.

My journey has begun and I look forward to sharing every step towards the finish line with the world.
