Welcome to the 5th annual Lake Balboa half marathon 5k 10k.
All flat two loop course along the Woodley Park bike path. Start / Finish location Woodley park-1 at 6130 Woodley Ave, Van Nuys CA 91406 at the corner of Woodley Ave and Victory Blvd.
Early start option:
We are proud to announce a "early start” option for the half marathon runners that need a little more time to finish and still be part of all the fun at the post race party. “Early Start” is at 7 am on race day; BUT you have to let us know ahead of time so that we can capture your bib number for the official timing stats. We will NOT have all of our water stations setup until about 7:30 am so you are on your own for water for the first 30 minutes. You must know the course if you want to use the early option
Weekend warriors / walkers :
Yes, very walker friendly course, mostly flat, plenty of water stations, and loads of fun! Generous 4:00 hour time limit so take your time and enjoy the scenery, all levels of fitness are welcome at our events.
