The 2017 LA BIG 5K will take place on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Dodger Stadium.

Registration for the event is now open!

This family-friendly 5K is open to participants of all ages and abilities, including runners, walkers and strollers. Come enjoy beautiful views of Los Angeles as you run through iconic Elysian Park before a rewarding finish set against the backdrop of world famous Dodger Stadium.

All participants will receive a race shirt, finishers medal, post-race refreshments and a truly unforgettable race experience.

EVENT SCHEDULE

6:00 am -- Dodger Stadium Parking Lots Open
6:30 am -- Late Registration/Bib Pick-Up Opens in Parking Lot G
8:00 am -- LA BIG 5K Race Start


The race will begin promptly at 8 am, beginning from the same start line as the annual Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, which will take place the following day. Participants should begin lining up for the 5K no earlier than 7 a.m. Please seed yourself according to expected race pace — quicker runners at the front of the start chute, slower runners and walkers to the back. For those that will be walking with a stroller, please place yourself at the very back of the pack to minimize any disruption of other runners.

Parking for the LA BIG 5K is free.

GETTING TO THE RACE

Due to street closures for the LA BIG 5K, only two entrances will be open to Dodger Stadium for participants, the Sunset Gate, accessible via Sunset Blvd, and the Downtown Gate, accessible via CA-110. These gates will open at 6:00 am PDT. (Note: The Golden State Gate, accessible via I-5, will be closed until 10:00 am due to street closures.)

Please allow yourself plenty of time to get into Dodger Stadium and pick up your race packet before the start at 8:00 am. Race Day Registration and Packet Pick-Up opens at 6:30 am.
