Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center. 1700 Stadium Way, Los Angeles, CA 90012



The 2018 Sports and Fitness Expo takes place, again this year, at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Fire Training Center on Stadium Way. The Training Center was named after Firefighter Frank Hotchkin who was killed in 1980, after falling through the roof of the building as he was working to put a fire out. Thousands of firefighters attend trainings at the Center. We are excited to be able to continue to grow our partnership with the LA Fire Department.

Participants visit the expo to pick up their race bibs, T-shirts, and participant bags. It is a family event with the inclusion of many free kid-focused activities including: the free Kids Fun Run; face painting; clowns; story telling; snacks, as well as arts and crafts. Each participant of the Kids Fun Run receives an official bib and a finisher’s medal. Vendors are encouraged to set up interactive displays that highlight their products and services.

Wear Your Race Bib

The race bib should be worn on the front of the shirt with the (4) safety pins that are in the envelope.  

Wear Your Timing Chip

You must wear your Timing Chip appropriately.

At the start of the race you will run across a mat that records your start time. Once you cross this mat your Tag is activated and your start time has begun. If it takes you a few minutes to cross the starting line after the race has officially started, do not panic. Your net time does not start counting until your individual Chip has crossed the mat.

If you do not wear the issued Chip you will not be included in the race results. It is not permitted to wear anyone else’s Chip.

Upon finishing the race you will again cross a mat and your time will be stopped. If you need assistance on using this chip volunteers will be on hand to assist and instructions will be included in your race bib packet. Enjoy your race!
