Chinatown Firecracker 10k/5k – Year of the Tiger

It’s the Chinese Year of the Tiger! And, I'm a Tiger! Celebrate and participate in the running of the 32nd Annual LA Chinatown Firecracker 5k/10k Run, Walk, Kiddie Run
and Bike Ride on the weekend of February 27. A traditional lion dance and 100,000 firecrackers kick-off the largest Chinese New Year run in the US and one of the longest running events in California! The scenic course winds though LA's most historic neighborhoods. All proceeds from the event are contributed to local inner-city elementary schools and community centers that promote education, community involvement, cultural awareness, and a healthy lifestyle for those living in the greater LA Chinatown community.

If you’re not in it for the race, come enjoy the free festival’s music, entertainment, and cultural acts from 10am to 10pm on Saturday, February 27, and noon to 3pm on Sunday, February 28. Located adjacent to the Metro Gold Line Chinatown Station, the festive celebration is just a short ride away from East LA or Pasadena.
