Studio City runs for weSPARK

January 14, 2018 by  

The eighth annual weSPARK 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk, and Kids Fun Run will be coming later this month.

Runners are encouraged to dress as their favorite television characters or movie stars, run at CBS Studio Center Radford’s back lot, and jog through the sets of classic television shows and iconic movies. There will be a contest to choose the best-dressed runner.

Five local LA radio stations – The Wave, KROQ, JACK FM, K-EARTH and AMPFM – will provide music along the course.

All registrants will receive T-shirts and finisher medals. The course will be chip-timed and have lap splits. The first three finishers in each age division will get awards.

Leyna Nguyen, CBS/KCAL News Anchor, will be the Master of Ceremonies and lead the race through the course. Anita ‘Sarge’ Kellman will head the warmup exercises. Kids ages thee to eleven will have their own Fun Run and can spend some time in the Kids Play Zone.

An expo will be set up for local vendors, and local business sponsors will have their logos included on site banners.

All proceeds for the event will go to weSPARK Cancer Support Center.

The event will take place next Sunday, January 21, at CBS Studio Center, 4024 Radford Avenue, Studio City. Packet pickup begins at 6:30 am with the main race starting at 8:00 am.
