The 39th running of the Manhattan Beach 10K takes place Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 7:30 a.m.
The Manhattan Beach 10k Run was founded in 1978 by a group of local runners who wanted to have a race "in town." It has always been a partnership between the City of Manhattan Beach and the Race Committee. This partnership makes keeping the race true to its original concept possible — the race is a true community event.
We are volunteers, over 100 strong, who are organized by the Race Committee. We pride ourselves on starting on time, having t-shirts that are works of art, and creating a fun community event that encourages competition and offers lots of awards. Some have even deemed the race the "Local Olympics"!
Since the beginning of its existence, the race profits are directly returned to the community in the form of:
- Various health & fitness enhancements to the recreation facilities of local schools & parks.
- Scholarships to Manhattan Beach high school seniors.
Of recent those donations surpass $560,000!
TO OUR KNOWLEDGE THE MB 10K IS THE ONLY RACE IN THE TOP 100 WITHOUT A MAJOR CORPORATE SPONSOR.
