LA Big5K

The expectation is that 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. Details of these technical safety measures will be made available at lamarathon.com .  

If we can’t deliver the LA Big 5K in their normal format on May 22, we are developing a November 2021 contingency date for the race. That said, we are optimistic that vaccine and rapid-testing developments, reduced field size, spacing and hygiene safety measures will allow us to conduct safe and fun races on our normal race courses on the May dates.
