Bimbo Bakeries is proud to host its 4th annual Global Energy Race! On Sunday, September 23rd, 35 cities and 23 countries will join together to set families and individuals of the world in motion. This year, Los Angeles runners have something special to look forward to, as L.A. LIVE will host the 2018 Global Energy Race for the first time ever! Participants will run through the streets of downtown Los Angeles, all while taking in some of the premier entertainment venues in the city.

About Global Energy Race
Global Energy Race is for everyone: competitive runners, casual walkers, families, friends, and everyday joggers looking to come out and participate in Bimbo's healthy, active lifestyle initiative. It is truly a global event; In 2016, Global Energy Race broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the most 10K races held simultaneously worldwide on the same day!

Bimbo Bakeries is also proud to partner with local area food banks during September (Hunger Awareness Month). For every kilometer completed by participants, 2 slices of bread will be donated to Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to support the local Los Angeles community. Every step helps feed someone in need.
