COURSE DESIGN | Arroyo Seco Parkway (SR-110)
VinFast Run The 110 10K starts on Orange Grove Street. From the start line, you will head to the freeway for a once in a lifetime opportunity where you will run on this historic roadway. Runners and walkers will descend the on-ramp and enter the road heading north towards Pasadena. Do not worry about yielding to traffic or entering at a safe speed. While the 110 is infamous for its' short ramps this closed road has been reserved for you and a couple thousand of your closest friends.
After passing the Fair Oaks overpass bridge, you will make a 180 degree turn and then continue southbound towards Dodger Stadium and Downtown Los Angeles. Wind your way through the bends and turns of one of the oldest freeways in the United States. The finish is adjacent to the Avenue 26 exit. Collect your bling and some water, have one of our official photographers get a photo of you as the sun rises over the freeway.
