Don your turkey day garb and enjoy a scenic 5k or 10k run through beautiful Downtown Los Angeles. Your Thanksgiving feast will taste even better after crossing that Finish Line! Features include sparkly finisher medals, participant t-shirts, age group awards, a Widdle Wobble race for the kids, kid-friendly zone and post-race festivities.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this event benefits the Midnight Mission - an amazing organization that offers a path to self sufficiency to those suffering from homelessness. Turkey Trot LA, sponsored by UAE-USA United, is also proud to partner with Bombas socks this year. Make a difference in the lives of Los Angeles's neediest individuals by registering and buying a pair of Bombas socks. For each pair sold, another pair is donated to The Midnight Mission along with a donation of $6.00. Don't forget to stop by the Giving Zone on race day to donate food, clothing, blankets, and personal hygiene items.
The race starts in front of City Hall and loops up and around Grand Park, past Disney Hall and Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. After a nice downhill, participants will be treated to a historic course along Spring Street, referred to as the Wall Street of the West! You'll pass by such notable buildings as the Continental Building (LA's first skyscraper), The Hellman Building, El Dorado Hotel, Crocker Bank and more. What a great way to see the city without traffic!
