The LA River Night Run series has offered runners a unique perspective of the river at night.  We have so much in store this year and we’d love your support!

The 2nd race of the Night Run Series lands the night before Earth Day, Thursday night, April 21st at 7:00 PM. The race is the secret little spot on the river known as the Bowtie Parcel. As always, your reward at the finish line includes all the goodies and snacks but we’ve also piled on live music, more swag and raffle prizes, and more!  This is a fun run which means no official timing or medals.  Instead, you get so much more!

Our goal is to make sure the Los Angeles River continues to become a revolutionary, natural environment that elevates the way we commute, train, reclaim, and live.  Greenway 2020, our leading cause, is the colossal undertaking of connecting all 51-miles of the river with bike paths, recreation, and hydrology efforts. Your support is essential to its progress!
