Important Course Announcement

Due to recent changes at Exposition Park, our new route will be 3 loops in order to accommodate a 5K. Due to the factor that participants must loop in order to complete a 5K, it is NOT recommended that participants run as they will be going against the flow of people as they go around the loop.

Strollers and Wheelchairs welcome!
We all love animals, but for safety and liability reasons, pets are not allowed at Pancreatic Cancer Action Network events. Thank you.

Parking Information

Parking will be available for $15 (cash only) in the LA Coliseum Parking Lot (the parking lot across from the event venue).*
*Price subject to change without notice.

Public Transportation

Travel to PurpleStride Los Angeles on the Metro!
The Expo Park/USC station stop is right near the venue.
