Race Information

Celebrate Chinese New Year with the Chinatown Firecracker Race! Runners can participate in either the 5K or 10K race which takes runners out and around Dodger Stadium.

The 5K run/walk is an out and back course that takes participants past the main entrance to Dodger Stadium. The course begins on North Broadway for approximately 1/3 mile, then turns left onto Bishops Road. An immediate right turn at Stadium Way takes you under the 110 freeway toward Dodger Stadium for about a 1 mile uphill climb.

The 10K course is a challenging run through the hills of Elysian Park. From N. Broadway, the course climbs up into the park to it’s highest elevation. The course winds high over the Figueroa Tunnels above the 110 freeway, through tree-lined rolling hills with the summit of Angels Point providing spectacular 180 degrees of the city.

There is also a kids fun run and a bike race, making this the perfect event for the whole family.
