Route information
Participants will run through Culver City in this Screenland 5k. Racers will start at Media Park on a concrete surface, and dash through the heart of Screenland, past the famous Historic Culver Hotel, where the Munchkins infamously stayed while filming "The Wizard of Oz".
Runners will also be immersed amongst other iconic movie scene landmarks, making the route perfect for all film fans.
The 1k Munchkin Dash takes place once the majority of runners have completed the course and takes participants under the age of 12 on a short run through Culver City.
Kids under 12 can compete in the 1k Munchkin Dash, so head over to the Screenland Expo after to celebrate your accomplishment with fare from your local businesses and community groups.

Did the 5k in 2020
This was my first race of any kind. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. It was well organized and fun.
Did the race in 2019
As a competitive runner I was uncertain the race would be worth my time, but it brings some pretty decent fast competition as well as a really fun and inviting festive atmosphere! I love races that combine fast competition with the festive. There were fun costumes, music, and a great little expo. The hairpin turns were tough but the course was so flat!!!
Did the race in 2019
Well organized and nice fast course! There are a few sharp turns but other than that its a fun event. The prizes are awesome too!
