The Recreation and Community Services Department is excited to announce that the Providence Holy Cross Healthy San Fernando 5K Relay Walk or Run has been combined with the Dia de los Muertos event as part of the six-month Healthy San Fernando! Campaign. The goal is to improve the health of the community.
This year, the race has two new routes promising to be both challenging and inspiring for runners. First is the new, expanded 5K race route for individual runners. The route incorporates the San Fernando Mission City Trail that is adjacent to the Metrolink tracks and travels north and south from Recreation Park. The route starts off similar to previous years, but instead of looping back to the park, runners continue on to Fifth St. then down to Jesse St. and enter the Mission City Bike Trail just before Truman St. The 5K Relay route remains as a loop course; however, the route incorporates the park walking path inside Recreation Park and runs along the altar displays that are part of the Dia de los Muertos festivities.
