Carrera de los Muertos – Los Angeles routes

Can we say fast, fun and scenic (or rápido, divertido y pintoresco)? The race starts on Main Street, in El Pueblo de Los Ángeles Historical Monument, the oldest section of Los Angeles, and home to Olvera Street.

The course runs through lower Chinatown and then takes a left turn onto Alameda Street towards Los Angeles State Historic Park (currently being remodeled). The 5k run/walk turns around at 19th Ave after you cross over the Los Angeles River. On the return, you will be treated to amazing views of the downtown skyline. Expect a little uphill finish as you return back to Olvera Street for an amazing finish line festival!
