Run with your family and friends through exciting downtown Culver City, along Culver and Washington Blvds.
Start on Culver Blvd and Main Street “The Shortest Main Street in the US”
Follow the course as it winds down Culver and Washington Blvds!
Run past the Historic Culver Hotel where the Munchkins stayed while filming “The Wizard of OZ” down the street at the former MGM, now Sony Pictures, Studio.
Pass near Culver City’s own Metro Expo Line station “Ivy Station.”
Culver City is truly “The Heart of Screenland” so come in costume representing your favorite movie character.
Start under the Rainbow and Finish on the Red Carpet into Media Park where you will join fellow finishers to celebrate your accomplishment. Wear your finisher medal proudly.
Then proceed directly to our expanded Screenland Expo to complete your day.
For future movie stars, we will again have our Munchkin Dash near the Culver Hotel. Harry Culver would be proud.
