SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, CA — Hundreds of Angelenos will hit the sidewalks this November 22 for The Great Los Angeles Walk 2014 – the annual event that dispels the myth that “nobody walks in L.A.”
This year, for the ninth edition, the Great Los Angeles Walk is doing something different: We’re bringing the walk to the San Fernando Valley for the first time!
That means this year, participants will hike east down Ventura Boulevard. (Normally the Great Los Angeles Walk heads west, from downtown Los Angeles to the ocean.) It is, after all, a street made famous through countless songs (Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’”) and also considered the Valley’s main drag.
Participants will meet at Warner Center Park (also known as Warner Ranch Park – 5800 Topanga Canyon Blvd.) at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, and proceed to walk approximately 17.1 miles (at a casual, all-day pace) to North Hollywood.
