Event details and schedule

Please note that the starting line is inside Ferraro Field.  The map below has two blue markers.  Please find the start/ finish 'marker' on the LA River bike path to understand how to enter Ferraro Field.  Last year, we had folks driving around Griffith Park and were late to the starting line because all map apps will not be able to find a physical address for Ferraro Field.  The starting line is only a few hundred feet away but you do need to go inside Ferraro Field.  There you will find plenty of parking.  From the 'pin' on the map below, TRAVEL EAST OVER THE 5 FWY INTO FERRARO FIELD.  Ferraro Field is home to numerous soccer fields and has public restrooms.  The starting line is adjacent to the field on the bike path (marked with smaller blue pins).  Please visit www.lariverhalf.com for more information.
