The 5k course is two loops throughout the LEGOLAND Amusement Park. The 5k will start and finish in the lower parking lot.  Runners will leave the lower parking lot and head into the park weaving through Miniland, Lego City, Ninjago World. When they arrive in Bricktopia, water stations will be setup and runners will be directed back into Miniland for the second loop.  All runners will finish back in the lower parking lot where spectators will be cheering.

This is an important day for our girls and the 5K will be held rain or shine. Ultimately, we invite you to make the best decision for you and your participant. Should outside conditions become unsafe, we will notify participants through email and social media as soon as possible, and you can also visit our Facebook page for updates.


This is a non-competitive event and we encourage all runners to go their “happy pace.” To keep the course clear for all, we ask slower runners and walkers to stay to the right, leaving room for other runners to pass. 

Pets are not allowed on the run course or in the start/finish areas. We have a large number of youth attending our event, for everyone's safety, please leave pets at home.
