Race Information

In past years the race has begin promptly at 8 am, beginning from the same start line as the annual Los Angeles Marathon, which has taken place the following day. Participants begin lining up for the 5K no earlier than 7 a.m. Runners seed themselves according to expected race pace — quicker runners at the front of the start chute, slower runners and walkers to the back. Stroller walkers, place themselves at the very back of the pack to minimize any disruption of the runners. 


A fully-staffed aid station featuring water and portable toilets is located near the mid-point of the LA BIG 5K course.


Once runners cross the Finish Line of the LA BIG 5K, they will collect their post-race refreshments and other goodies before entering the Finish Festival to be reunited with friends and family.
