The 2021 LA Big 5K will be held on March 20, 2021 at Dodger Stadium.

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

6:30 am -- Bib Pick-Up Opens in Parking Lot G
8:00 am -- LA BIG 5K Race Start
9:30 am -- LA 1/2K Kids Run Start
The race will begin promptly at 8 am, beginning from the same start line as the annual 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.
A fully-staffed aid station featuring water and portable toilets is located near the mid-point of the LA BIG 5K course.
Once runners cross the Finish Line of the LA BIG 5K, they will collect their post-race refreshments and other goodies before entering the Finish Festival to be reunited with friends and family.
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.
The LA BIG 5K course shares a Start Line with the Los Angeles Marathon and winds through Elysian Park to finish steps from Dodger Stadium.
