The Wrigley River Run race course is located in Long Beach’s historic Wrigley neighborhood, and portions of the course will follow the Los Angeles River Trail.

More than 1,000 adults and hundreds of kids are expected to participate in the fourth annual Wrigley River Run/Walk 5K and 10K on Saturday, June 11. The first race will begin at 7:30am. The race course is located in Long Beach’s historic Wrigley neighborhood, and portions of the course will follow the Los Angeles River Trail. A race for children ages 10 and under, the River Run Tadpole Trot, will be held in conjunction with the event at 9:30am.
All race proceeds will be donated to programs that benefit at-risk youth in Long Beach. Those interested in participating in the event can register at wrigleyriverrun.com or in person on Friday, June 10, from 5pm to 8pm in the parking lot of Holy Innocents Parish, 2500 Pacific Ave. or on Saturday, June 11 starting at 6am at the same location. This location is also the start/finish line for the event.
“This will be a great chance for people across Long Beach to come together, get outside with their family, friends, and neighbors, get some exercise, have some fun, and support a great cause to help the youth of our city,” says race organizer Gavin McKiernan.
A finish line festival with live music, prizes, and awards including free shoes to the race winners donated by Road Runner Sports will take place after the race. All 5K and 10K participants will receive goodie bags and commemorative T-shirts will be presented to the first 75 participants in the Tadpole Trot and all children in the race will get a medal.
