DIRECTIONS TO START LINE


  • Race morning at the start line
  • 5:15am until race start

TAKING 5 FWY NORTH: Take the the Griffith Park exit (this is right after the Los Feliz exit). At the exit, make a right on Cyrstal Springs. Continue until you see the the next available left turn (you’ll see a sign that says Merry Go Round), and go LEFT here. Go up and you’ll reach what looks like a dead end but if you turn right, you’ll see the big parking lot.

TAKING 5 FWY SOUTH: Take the the Los Feliz exit (this is right after the Colorado exit). At the exit, stay on your right and go on to Los Feliz West. As you exit, take the first available right into the Park (this will be Crystal Springs Blvd). Continue past the first few stops until you see the the next available left turn (you’ll see a sign that says Merry Go Round), and go LEFT here. Go up and you’ll reach what looks like a dead end but if you turn right, you’ll see the big parking lot.
