Fundraiser for SRLA
Come help us raise funds for Students Run LA and celebrate Deo's 50th birthday (again...for the 4th time...) with a beautiful trail run in Griffith Park. Deo has been a coach for SRLA for 20 years! There's a distance for everyone: 5K, 10K, half or full marathon! Limited to 100 runners total across all distances. Registration includes shirt and finisher's medal: $35 for the 5K/10K, $55 for the half/full. Los Angeles Frontrunners are the coordinators.
Pecan Grove Picnic Area - NEW START LOCATION
The start location is NEW this year. We will stage the race from the PECAN GROVE PICNIC AREA. Please click the link below to see a map of the park. Pecan Grove is just a bit northwest of the Zoo & Autry. If you are a returning runner, DO NOT go to the location where we started last year...you'll be all alone and sad if you do :)

This year, all courses will be run on the main trail and all courses are mostly flat. The 5K and 10K are out and back. The half is also out and back and you do the circuit twice. The full does the same circuit four times.

Parking and Bib Pick-Up
Bib pick-up is race morning starting at 6:30 AM..There are 30 parking spots at Pecan Grove so if you are early enough, you'll be able to park there. This is a small race so your chances are good to grab a spot right at the start. If all the spots are gone, park at the Zoo lot, at the edge closest to Pecan Grove, it's a short walk.

About Students Run LA
Students Run LA is perhaps the most perfect 501c3 charitable organization to support as a runner in Los Angeles. Since 1993, SRLA has successfully carried out the same teacher-led training program, to challenge at-risk secondary students to experience the benefits of goal-setting, character development, adult mentoring and improved health by providing them with a truly life-changing experience: the training for and completion of the Los Angeles Marathon. What started with one teacher and his handful of students has grown to more than 500 leaders and 3,200 students from 175 schools and community programs throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
Online registration will close Thursday, March 1, at 11:59 PM. There will be NO raceday registration!

More Details/Aids Stations
ALL RACES will start at 7:30 AM. Packet pick-up will be race morning. There will be no raceday registration.
Water/Aid stations: there will be a water/aid station at the start/finish and two stations on the course. Because it is an out & back course, you will pass water/aid stations several times, depending on which distance you are running.
