ABOUT THE 310K
Watch the video above to learn more about this year's 310k from event host Leslie Cohen.
Run 3.10 in the 310!
Leslie Cohen Law PC is bringing back our 5k fundraiser for 2023! Our 12th annual 310k run/walk will be held in person on Sunday, October 1, 2023 at 8 AM at Crescent Bay Park in beautiful Santa Monica, just west of scenic Main Street.
Race proceeds will be donated to Public Counsel and the Public Counsel Debtor Assistance Project (DAP), which provides pro-bono law assistance to disadvantaged communities, and LA Saves Track, an organization raising funds to build a new track at LA High. In addition to race registration proceeds, we are also accepting donations to support both organizations' work. We hope you'll join us for this year's event!
A virtual option race option is also available for non-locals. If you choose the virtual option, you'll run or walk a 5k distance on your own time, use a run-tracking app to record your time and distance, and submit your results at our registration link. Virtual race participants will also have the option to receive race shirts and medals.
Virtual participants will have a two-week window to complete and submit their virtual run, from September 15th to October 1st, 2023—note that this is the two-week period before the in-person event. The cutoff to submit virtual results is midnight PST on October 1st. Sign up today to get started with this year's race!
RACE DAY TEAM

While she enjoys the travel opportunities that elite running has afforded her, the 310k holds a special place in her heart because it brings together the community in Los Angeles, her hometown of nearly 50 years. She loves meeting members of the running community, so if you see her on race day, be sure to come say hello!

PRE-RACE PACKET PICK-UP
Packet pick-up is an opportunity to check in and grab your race bib and shirt before the day of the event. It's also a great time to meet the race organizers and volunteers and ask any questions about the event. Come say hi! This year's packet pickup information is as follows:
Date: Saturday, September 30th | 3 PM to 6 PM
Road Runner Sports Santa Monica
1338 4th St.

SAME-DAY PACKET PICKUP & REGISTRATION
If you are unable to join us for packet pickup on the 30th, you can pick up your bib and shirt on race day, October 1st. Depending on capacity, we'll also have a limited number of race-day signups available. Just make sure to arrive early—same-day pickup is from 7 am to 7:45 am, since the race begins sharply at 8.
*Reminder: Please wear your bib on the front of your clothes so that your photos can be tagged correctly. Your bib also helps let race organizers and volunteers know know you are affiliated with the event.*
