Rain or shine, the 2024 Lakewood Run returns the morning of Saturday, March 2 when deputy sheriffs, recreational runners, families and kids gather at the starting line in front of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station for the 5K Run/Walk/Ruck or the 10K Run course for time.
Through March 1, fees are $45 for the 5K Walk/Run and $55 for the 5K Ruck or the 10K Run. Rates increase on race day.
Your support of the Lakewood Run funds the Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach Live Your Dream program to assist women who provide the primary financial support for their families by giving them resources to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
Proceeds also benefit high school girls through the Dream It, Be It program that provides access to professional role models and career education.
In addition, Run proceeds help local organizations such as Su Casa~Ending Domestic Violence, Friends of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station Fund, and 9-9-9 for Kids (a program benefitting foster children in L.A. County).
Professional timing will be used. Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each category of the 5K and 10K running events. All finishers for the 5K/10K will receive finisher medals.
For participants and spectators, the day includes a fitness expo and displays of public safety equipment and programs.
There is also live entertainment, food trucks and special giveaways from Lakewood-area businesses, plus a scavenger hunt and rock star costume contest.
