Registration is open for the upcoming Griffith Park Run Half Marathon and 5K on Sunday, Feb. 5.
The event is being held by the Los Angeles Parks Foundation and is organized by Aztlan Athletics, a community-based organization that has partnered with the foundation to hold the run since 2018. The Los Angeles Parks Foundation was founded in 2008 to enhance, expand and preserve public parks, recreation and open space in Los Angeles. The foundation has raised more than $42 million to fund capital projects, programs and initiatives that improve access to public parks and recreation for underserved communities, promote environmental sustainability and preserve public parks for future generations.
The half marathon will follow a 13.1-mile course on varying terrain throughout Griffith Park. The 5K course is 3.1 miles and will be held on predominately flat ground around the perimeter of the park’s golf course. Registration is $55 for the 5K and $95 for the half marathon. Proceeds support the Los Angeles Parks Foundation.
Water will be available along the route and portable restrooms will be located near the halfway point in the Travel Town Museum area. A roving first aid team will also assist participants in the half marathon and 5K run, and a first aid station will be located at the finish line.
The half marathon begins at 7:30 a.m., and the 5K begins at 10 a.m. Registration will be available online through Feb. 4 by visiting griffithparkrun.itsyourrace.com/register.
Onsite registration will be available on Feb. 4 from 4-8 p.m. in the courtyard next to the Ranger Station, 4730 Crystal Springs Drive, and on the day of the event from 5:30-7:15 a.m. Runners are encouraged to begin lining up for the half marathon no later than 7:20 a.m., and the 5K no later than 9:45 a.m.
