Run 4 Fun

Run 4 Fun

Note: The LA84 Foundation has "paused" its Run 4 Fun program and is planning an alternative youth running program that could begin in 2020.

Previous Run 4 Fun Program

LA84 FoundationThe annual LA84 Foundation Run 4 Fun Festival features a 2-kilometer cross country race at a recreational area in December. Students from Palms and more than 2 dozen other schools run by age group. The LA84 program is still funded from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, so the event is free.

Students must sign up for Run 4 Fun and submit their running times for two 800-meter runs and two 1000-meter runs. There is a deadline for sign-ups so interested students should talk to their P.E. teacher.

Palms students go to Run 4 Fun as a field trip, by bus, starting and ending at school. One year Palms took 5 busloads of students!
