626 Golden Streets: 18+ Mile Open Streets Extravaganza Coming to SGV on March 5

On Sunday March 5th, 2017 – the one year anniversary of the Foothill Gold Line Extension grand opening – the Metro Open Streets Program presents ​ 626 Golden Streets, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk, bike, run, skate, scoot, dance and play on over 18 miles of car-free open streets. The FREE, family-friendly event will touch much of the (626) area code, linking 7 Foothill cities and 6 Gold Line stations, for the first time. The festivities will kick off at 8:45am with an official Opening Ceremony at Mission St./Meridian Ave. in South Pasadena featuring special guests, giveaways, a free bike raffle, performances, and start of the Train Run Challenge, the San Gabriel Valley’s first 7-city, point-to-point half marathon from South Pasadena to Duarte.
 
The event is free to the general public. Attendees can start & stop at any point along the route, and explore as much or as little of the event route as they wish. Along the 18+ mile route, check out activity zones where you can enjoy live music, free fitness & dance classes, pop-up art installations, kids play zones, and more!
