Chinatown Firecracker 5/10K Run

The 10K course is a challenging run through the hills of Elysian Park. From N. Broadway, the course winds up into the park to it's highest elevation (see elevation map). The course winds through tree-lined rolling hills with the summit of Angels Point providing spectacular 180 degrees of the city.

The early morning vistas of downtown Los Angeles to the south and neighborhoods to the north from the various vantage points in Elysian Park are quite breathtaking and not commonly seen, even by longtime Angelenos.

Whatever your competitive level, enjoy the scenery and the camaraderie of fellow runners.

There is no vehicular traffic to contend with. Mile markers indicate where you are. Split times are called out by supportive course workers.

5K and 10K Starting times will stagger to accommodate all entrants.

Entry fee includes a complimentary "Carbo-Load" meal on Saturday.
