LA Big 5K

November 6, 2021

The expectation is that the Los Angeles Marathon and the LA Big 5K will be delivered in its usual formats and on its normal race course with changes to start line procedures for better participant spacing, aid stations, packet pickup, and post-race operations and gatherings.

LA Big 5K Kids Run - Instructions for Parents

Instructions for Parents: Each child will be given a participant bib that must be pinned to their clothing. The participant bib will feature a parent tear tag, which should be removed from the bib and held onto by the parent. Parents may run with their child (only one parent per child), but must show the tear tag to be permitted into the start corral. Parents who do not run with their child can retrieve them after they finish by showing their tear tag.
