About This Activity

Set in the heart of Los Angeles through our city's most iconic park, the Griffith Park Run Half Marathon & 5K winds through the trees, along the Los Angeles River, past the Zoo, Travel Town and many other beautiful landmarks.  The run showcases what the park has to offer and is the only Half Marathon road race held in Griffith Park.

Half Marathon Course

A great course following the roads through Griffith Park.  Some good uphill completed at mile 2, relatively flat course from there, taking runners past the Zoo, Ferraro Soccer Fields, along the LA River and along Crystal Springs Road.  The roads are closed to traffic with water stations every 2 miles.

5K Course 

The course follows along Crystal Springs on flat road with no cars.


All proceeds benefit LA's 440 city parks.
