LA Big 5K

The LA BIG 5K is the Saturday 5K as part of the Los Angeles Marathon weekend.

This fun 5K is open to runners and walkers of all abilities! It is the perfect event for Marathoners looking for a shakeout run the day and for family and friends who want to be part of the Marathon weekend experience but not up for 26.2 miles!

The LA Big 5K 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 our favorite event of the weekend: the LA Big 5K Kids Run. This event is perfect for future marathoners ages 3 - 8.
