Valley Village is an official nonprofit partner with the Los Angeles Marathon and LA Big 5K. Funds raised by Team Valley Village and its partners support Valley Village Programs serving women and men with developmental and intellectual challenges, helping them to thrive and live independently as possible.

The LA Big 5K is a family-friendly race open to participants of all ages and abilities, including runners, walkers, and strollers. Experience an iconic run through Los Angeles as you run through beautiful Elysian Park before a rewarding finish set against the backdrop of world-famous Dodger Stadium. All participants will receive a race shirt, finishers medal, post-race refreshments, and a truly unforgettable race experience. This year’s LA Big 5K race takes place on Saturday, November 6, 2021.

The LA Marathon (26.2 miles) and the Charity Challenge (13.1 miles) occur on Sunday, November 7, 2021.
