The 2021 Lakewood Run celebrates its 30th anniversary when it kicks off virtually on Saturday, March 6, 2021. Although COVID considerations prevent the Lakewood Run from offering its traditional activities, this year’s participants can download a virtual “race map” and have 30 days to complete the “30 for 30th Challenge” by visiting local businesses for fun giveaways and discounts.
Registration is available only online at www.lakewoodrun.com/registration. Registration fees include a specially designed T-shirt ($45) or half-zip ($55).

In addition, Run proceeds help local organizations such as Lakewood Meals on Wheels, 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).
