Homeboy 5K Run / Walk


Saturday, OCTOBER 2, 2021

The Homeboy 5k Run/Walk returns! We are so excited to see everyone again and return to a vibrant day filled with fun, fitness, festivities and more, here in Downtown Los Angeles, all in the spirit of supporting our mission to provide hope, training and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated people.

We’ll see you for the Annual Homeboy 5K Run/Walk on October 2, 2021! The safety of participants is a top priority for Homeboy Industries and the team is working closely with local health experts and officials to provide every participant with a safe experience that will include enhanced cleaning protocols.

Packet pickup will be on the following days:

Wednesday, September 29th from 4:00 – 7:00 PM

Friday, October 1st from 4:00 – 7:00 PM

For sponsorship opportunities, please contact Elisa Johnson at homeboy5k@homeboyindustries.org.


Runners and walkers of all ages who register for the Homeboy 5K Run / Walk will receive a t-shirt, chip timing, a commemorative souvenir, and access to all post-race festivities outside our headquarters!

You can also create a team with your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers!

We appreciate our Homeboy 5K Run/Walk volunteers! Individuals and groups of all sizes are welcome to email our team to sign up for various time slots and roles for the duration of the event.

You can impact the lives of thousands of Angelenos by becoming a partner with the Homeboy 5K Run/Walk. With your support, we will continue standing with the most vulnerable among us so that everyone who wants a second chance at life has the vital resources they need.
