Event Description

Join Los Angeles Frontrunners as we celebrate the life of one of our own, Marilyn Jackson, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2014. Action Jackson - as she was affectionately known to her Walgreen's family - courageously fought the disease with her trademark humor, smile, and unending love for all those in her life. Marilyn was greatly aided by Life Worth Saving, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to support urban women and their families who struggle with cancer and other diseases.

You can choose either the 5K or 10K, and you can run as fast or walk as slow as you'd like! Registration is $25 and includes a race shirt and finisher's medal.  

The race starts and finishes in the Crystal Springs Picnic Area behind the Griffith Park Ranger Station. The 5K loop is a flat loop around the golf course on the main trail. The 10K is two loops.

Online registration will close Thursday night, February 23, at 11:59 PM. Bib pick-up will be race morning.

LA Frontrunners is completely volunteer and 100% of all donations are dispersed to Life Worth Saving, so your dollars really are going to the cause!
