An annual tradition, the City and Community Center of La Cañada Flintridge invite you to attend the 30th Annual Thanksgiving Day Run & Food Drive on Thursday, November 23 at Memorial Park.

The 2023 event will feature a new route that has been relocated to Foothill Boulevard between El Camino Corto and Gould Avenue. Beginning near La Canada Boulevard, runners will travel westbound on Foothill Boulevard, turn eastbound on Foothill near El Camino Corto and continue on the eastbound lanes. They will finish by traveling westbound before Gould Avenue, then ending the race on La Canada Boulevard.

The revamped route means Foothill Boulevard will be closed to traffic for the entire duration of the run. This change prioritizes the safety of all involved parties. In addition, the updated route avoids any freeway on and off ramps, further reducing any additional risks to participants.

The Thanksgiving Day Run features an Adult 5k/Walk with an 8 a.m. warm up and 8:30 a.m. race time and a Kids’ Mile with a 9 a.m. warm up and 9:30 a.m. race time. Registered participants may pick up their swag bags and race bibs at the Community Center (4469 Chevy Chase Dr) Tuesday, November 21st from 9AM to 7PM.

In partnership with Nasa Services, the Community Center is accepting non-perishable food donations for its yearly Thanksgiving Day Food Drive from now until Wednesday, November 22. Drop-off bins are located at the Community Center.  Contact the Community Center for more information. All donations will be distributed to community members in need by the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Department.

This event is the Community Center’s largest fundraiser of the year with spots filling up quickly. Register today by visiting
