Participants can look forward to soaking up the summer vibes while enjoying the ocean view. The race will take place from 7:30 AM to 10 AM, allowing participants to start their day with an energizing activity.

All participants will receive a medal and enjoy post-race snacks. There will also be some surprise goodies and swag for participants to look forward to. Photos will be available to capture the memories of this special event.

For those who are unable to attend in person, there will be a virtual option available, ensuring that everyone can participate. The Summer Days 5K is an inclusive event that welcomes participants of all ages, making it a great race for the whole family.

LARC Press release
Dear members,
Dr. Kazu Suzuki has been appointed as a medical advisor to our running club. 
For our members, he will be providing the first aid, such as treatment of minor cuts and scrapes, minor allergic reaction and ankle sprains etc. He is an experienced foot and ankle surgeon, and he can advise you on running related questions and injuries as needed. He is an active member of the club and he will be present at Saturday Totem-pole meetings and Wednesday track nights on most days. 
Most importantly, he will have an EKG device and an AED device which is a heart defibrillator device that can be life-saving when a person has a cardiac arrest and collapses. Although it’s rare, cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, including a seemingly healthy runner. You may have heard a 29-year-old Danish professional soccer player (Christian Eriksen) collapsed during a Euro tournament match in June 2021. Fortunately, Eriksen was resuscitated with AED, sent to a hospital for a pace maker and survived, solely because he had an immediate medical attention.
Kazu is a native of Tokyo Japan. He is a Boston marathon qualifier/finisher and an Ironman finisher. He is an attending staff of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since 2006 & has a private practice clinic in West Hollywood. He also welcomes your running or health-related questions via email (, which may be featured in our weekly emails and in our website.
