Summer is around the corner and that means The Home Depot Center's events calendar is heating up. To celebrate, the facility will host its Inaugural "Home Depot Center 5K/10K Run" on the 125-acre multi-sports campus on June 21 at 8 a.m. to benefit The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation.
Registration starts at $35 (with an option to upgrade for sideline tickets - $65) for the run/walk ($45 registration day of event) includes tickets to two exciting summer sporting events at The Home Depot Center - June 28 LA Galaxy vs. Houston Dynamo and June 21 LA Sol vs. FC Gold Pride.
The 5K/10K run/walk course highlights the grounds of the 125-acre campus of The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills. Participants will run a course that starts and finishes at the 10,000-seat track & field facility and includes the running through the 27,000-seat soccer stadium, 8,000-seat tennis stadium, as well as parts of the dirt trail of Avalon Blvd. and Victoria St. in Carson, Calif. A timing company will be used for those wishing to get their official race time from start to finish.

The foundation has donated more than $500,000 to youth organizations since opening the facility in 2003.
