About the 5K and Kid’s Mile

The Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge’s Thanksgiving Day 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Mile Run has been a local tradition and a community favorite for over two decades. It is also our biggest fundraiser of the year and we are thrilled to come back strong. This year we will see you at the starting line at La Cañada’s Memorial Park or we are bringing the race to you on the course of your choice if you register for our Virtual Race!

The Kid’s Mile is for children 12 and under.
