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!

Volunteer tasks include, among others: providing water and food, keeping runners on course, cheering runners on, keeping spirits up and making the race safer for everyone! We guarantee a great time and the time spent will be worthwhile.

You don’t have to be a runner to volunteer at the event. If you have simple words of encouragement and are able to help direct runners or hand out water, you are valuable to us!

In exchange you’ll get goodies (T-Shirts/Swag) and refreshments, and more importantly, you will be rewarded with the pride in knowing you helped to make the event happen, and that everyone finished because of the help you offered.
