Our event will be held at the Hermosa Beach Pier Plaza in between Henessey’s Tavern and The Mermaid Restaurant near the running pathway known as “The Strand.”
The walk route will stay on the bike and running pathway known as The Strand. We will first head northbound toward Manhattan Beach. We will eventually make a U-turn once you reach the end of the Hermosa Beach strand and go the opposite direction on the pathway until you reach your original destination at Pier Plaza.
Parking is very limited around the site. There are “Pay By Space” parking meters currently located in Parking Lot A at 11th Street & Hermosa Avenue and in the Downtown Parking Structure at 13th & Hermosa Avenue. Click here to see other parking locations around Hermosa Beach. **Please plan accordingly and remember to pay at the meters to avoid parking tickets**
You may utilize Beach Dr., an alley just east of The Mermaid Restaurant lot, for quick drop off.

We encourage Teams and/or individual participants to bring silent auction items to this year’s Los Angeles Brain Tumor Walk! The amount raised for the items you bring will go back to your team or individual fundraising tally.
We highly recommend that you bring a full description of the silent auction item(s), a starting bid that you’d like, as well as your Team or individual name so we know who to credit. Please feel free to bring as many silent auction items as you’d like. Silent Auction items will be in a designated canopy on the day of the event and you can drop them off to the volunteer in charge of the area.
Food at the Walk
We will have water and granola bars in the morning of our participants on a first come first served basis.
