Annual Village Run/Walk

Valley Village

Run With Us!

September 30, 2018 is the date for the next Village Run/Walk. We’re looking forward to a brisk 5k and 10k at Lake Balboa. Get your running shoes out and start choosing your favorite laces. It’s going to be a good one! Register now and start fundraising, too.

The event will be held at the Kite Field at Anthony C. Beilenson Park at Lake Balboa in Van Nuys, CA, at 6300 Balboa Blvd. The start and finish line, parking and festival will be located at this location. The 10k route will be a double loop of the 5k.
