Join us on Sunday, August 6th for the annual LARC’s Summer Dayz 5K at 7:30 a.m.!

The race will start on the beach path at the end of Bay Street near Crescent Pay Park, next to Hotel Casa Del Mar.  The iconic Santa Monica Pier and Ferris Wheel, will provide a stunning backdrop for all participants.  The course takes you along the scenic and flat course on the pedestrian path by the beach.  The participants will be cheered on by spectators and volunteers, creating a lively and supportive atmosphere.  The race will end back at Hotel Casa Del Mar, where the runners will be greeted with a medal, refreshments, surprise swag, and a sense of accomplishment.  First place men and women will receive a new pair of Hokas and second place men and women winners will receive Hoka swag.  There will also be a shoe donation for In the People's Corner who are a non-profit providing our donated running shoes to the underserved community in Los Angeles. Clean out your closets and bring your running shoes to the race.  

This is a family-friendly fun run that is clock timed (not chip timed). It will be a loop course on the beach path (open course), with a marked turnaround and a water station. Link to course map:
