The LA BIG 5K is the Saturday 5K as part of the Los Angeles Marathon weekend. The course starts and finishes in the shadows of Dodger Stadium. It shares a start line location with the Los Angeles Marathon and winds through Elysian Park to finish steps from Dodger Stadium.
After the LA Big 5K is one of our favorite events of the weekend: the LA Kids Run. This event is perfect for future marathoners ages 3 - 8.
