Coming February 16, 2019. Go whole hog. It’s the year of the pig and what better way to ring in the new year than sign up for the Los Angeles Chinatown Firecracker 5/10K Run/Walk. Through paved road, the out and back 5K course takes you around Dodger Stadium. The 10K course is more challenging, taking you through the hills of Elysian Park to the summit of Angels Point affording panoramic views of the city. Or if running’s not your thing, there’s a 20 or 40 mile bike ride around the neighboring cities of Pasadena, Arcadia, and San Marino. After all this exercise, stick around for the Firecracker Festival with live entertainment like the classic lion dancers, taiko performances (Traditional Japanese drums), and Latin folk music. This lunar new years, celebrate the Year of the Pig at the Los Angeles Chinatown Firecracker 5/10K Run/Walk!
