Each May, in coordination with the Torrance Armed Forces Day Celebration, the longest running military-sanctioned event of its kind west of the Mississippi, the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and UCLA health in partnership with Village Runner and Del Amo Fashion Center, proudly present the 5K for Freedom in tribute to Louis Zamperini.
More than 1,000 runners, walkers, and joggers participate in the annual event, showing their support of the brave service members of the United States Armed Forces. 2023’s celebration highlights the United States Coast Guard. The 5K route follows the eucalyptus- lined Torrance Boulevard, on the same route on which the City of Torrance’s Armed Forces Day Parade is held later in the day.
The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce applauds the efforts of the City of Torrance, the Torrance Police Department, and the Armed Forces personnel who worked tirelessly to make the weekend-long festivities, a wonderful celebration of community in Torrance.
Mark your calendars for the 2023 5K for Freedom Run/Walk and Armed Forces Day Celebration on Saturday, May 20th!
