Griffith Park Trail 50k/Marathon/Half Marathon

Comments

I was just looking at the revised 2021 course and the Griffith Park 50K is no cakewalk! At nearly 6700 feet of elevation gain it's actually a little more than the Sean O'Brien 50K... and Sean O'Brien is tough.
Mayor Garcetti says he would be open to sporting events in the city if there was a plan to keep people safe. There may be a way to make this happen.
Hi folks! Teen Cancer America is putting teams together for the 2020 LA Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K on March 7th and 8th! Message or email me at [email protected] if you're interested! 😊🤘You can also visit https://teencanceramerica.org/get-involved/la-marathon/ for more info.
Can anyone tell me about how much the 50k is? I need to make sure that we’re able to budget in the cost before registration opens up on November 1st.
Any links to photos from the 2019 race?
Hi there. When will final times & pictures be added from the 2019 race last Saturday?? Excited to see those :)

Thanks!
My race recap from Saturday's Griffith Park Trail 50K is now up on the blog. SPOILER ALERT: I ran away with an automatic PR, SECOND Female Overall and FIRST in my Age Group! BOOYA GRANDMA!

Good luck everyone! Looks like a challenging day for us. On the bright side, I don't think P-22 likes wet weather.
I haven't run on these trails when it's been raining... anyone know if they get slick/anything to watch out for? Thanks
any training runs on the wknd
Thank you to everyone who helped make this a wonderful experience - race director/organizers; volunteers; photographers; timing folks; people walking by and cheering on; and of course the badass runners who pushed through regardless of the rain/mud. You all made it a special day, so thank you :)
Many thanks to Keira, Jesse, and all the volunteers that helped make the event yesterday so fun. I know Keira puts a lot of passion and love into her events and it shows. Great course markings, wonderful aid stations, challenging courses, and a fun welcoming finish line. Wooohooo!!! Thanks again everyone!!

A beautiful Trail 50k, Marathon, and half marathon ran in the heart of the historic Griffith Park. Race Director is Ultra Runner Keira Henninger.

This is a faster course with some solid good hills, and up to fourteen flat fast runnable miles. You will cross paths with every historical landmark that Griffith Park has to offer, and experience the magic of what this special

#trailrunnersunited
Now more than ever I am asking something of you all. As so many of us have lost jobs, or are at home w/kids trying to keep them busy, or just doing what we can to not loose our minds; here is my challenge. Any positive picture you post, or video you make, or anything you are doing to get through these tough times PLEASE use the hashtag #trailrunnersunited so that those in our community have a place to go on social media to get love, and support. It can be any positive or creative content you want. It can be a video of things you are doing to keep the kids busy, it can be a picture of your new home office, or a simple silly video of a dance party you are having in your living room or on the trails. Let’s start this. Let’s do this. Let’s help each other through these times. If you don’t quite know how hashtags work all you have to do is click on the #trailrunnersunited hashtag, and then click “follow” on it. Then whenever you are on social media you can just click the hashtag to see all related content. It will also show up in your feeds. This will help as we scroll, and all we are seeing is stressful panicked posts. Let’s change the thought path of this. Together we can! Please share this!! #trailrunnersunited Please feel free to also tag me so I can share your posts!
Sincerely,@Keira Henninger
