We Have Stories & A Special Gift For Our Participants

We reached out for some inspirational stories and heard some great ones!

MEET RON

Screen Shot 2018-09-18 at 10.23.38 AM.png

“I lived in MB from 1978 to 1983 and always enjoyed  going to the Old Hometown Fair so, in 1983, I decided to run the 10k Run, also.  However, a small conflict appeared: my upcoming wedding and the run were on the same day!  Happily, there was a few hour difference between the two events and the problem was solved.   On October 1, at 7:30, I ran the race in about 45 minutes.  Four hours later, I made it, on time, to Bel Air and got married (my wife, Becky, thought I was crazy). 

This year marks our 35th Wedding Anniversary and my third running of the race.  Becky, and my younger daughter, Tiffany, will be cheering me on.  My older daughter, Suzanne, will be running the race with me!   I ran the 1984 race with my high school friend, Cameron Draine and we are still best friends—he got married a week after I did.  My 1983 finisher’s shirt has worn out but I will wear the purple 1984 finisher’s visor for this year’s race!”


MEET JODIE

IMG_6064.jpeg

“I am turning 40 this October and I love to run.  Early this year, I started the search for an October race to help me celebrate the big 4-0.  And, I found the perfect fit.  Two days before I was born, the Manhattan Beach 10k had its inaugural race.  Isn't that fabulous?  I knew I had to run in THIS race!

I convinced 9 friends to sign up and run with me.  Most of us live in Atascadero, CA but my Mom is coming from Canada and another friend from Arizona.  It will be the first time any of us have run this race.  We look forward to running with you all.”

Can You Dig This?!

DigMB.com-Logo.jpg

For The Love Of Manhattan Beach

Today we are highlighting two super resources for the city of Manhattan Beach -  DigMb and the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association. DigMB is 100% local and 100% about Manhattan Beach and it should be your go to if you want to know about all the happenings here covering topics from the beach, to restaurants, to local school news. The Downtown Businesses of Manhattan Beach are your source for discovering why this beloved beach city is called "Heaven in flip flops".

Our Q & A With DigMB

DigMB is an awesome resource for the community of Manhattan Beach! What are the top 3 things you're currently digging about MB?

There is SO MUCH to do here in the summertime – it’s hard for me to keep up! With concerts, plays, and movies; world-class athletic events; and amazing activities and events at the beach, you could keep yourself and your family entertained all summer and never spend a dime. The Manhattan Beach Department of Parks and Rec deserves a big shout-out for all they do to create fun and interesting events all year long.

How do you get your community information? Can the general public submit to a calendar or a story idea?

Mostly people email me (jf@digmb.com) but I also keep my ear to the ground and watch Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter closely to see what’s going on around town.

Generally if people have a community event, they just enter it into our website themselves- the DigMB platform is very user-friendly and you are free to just go in and put it in the calendar – but people are welcome to email me as well.

Some of our MB10K participants will be coming from out of state and even out of the country, what do you recommend as the top 3 things they must see while they are visiting our beach town?

Fun question! It’s hard to pick just three.

Once the runners finish the MB10K they’ll be down at the Manhattan Beach Pier, which is definitely at the top of the must-see list… But instead of just looking at it, I’d also recommend that they walk out on the pier and take a few minutes to watch the surfers and sea creatures, and then look back toward land to take in the cityscape of Manhattan Beach.

For a second destination, I’d recommend that they start at the Manhattan Beach Library and walk across the Civic Plaza taking in all of the artwork…ending up at Metlox Plaza where they can stop for a coffee or a quick bite.

If they’re interested in checking out shops and restaurants, it’s fun to stroll through Downtown Manhattan Beach or El Porto to get a flavor of this lively beach town.

For someone who’s more interested in nature, I’d recommend heading over to Polliwog Park and strolling the grounds, checking out the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden, and even popping in to the Manhattan Beach Historical Society’s Beach Cottage Museum (open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons).

Manhattan Beach has been creating quite a buzz in the food world, what are some of the most creative things you’ve seen coming out of the kitchens lately?

I love what Chef D has been doing at Manhattan House with the Junior Chefs program (partnering with Growing Great and local elementary schools to get kids’ garden creations on the menu). The program should be back in swing when the MB10K rolls around and school is back in session.

As a food writer (I also have a food blog called Jolly Tomato at www.jollytomato.com) I’m also thrilled that there are so many restaurants in town that are doing amazing things with fresh, seasonal produce. You’ll find seasonally changing menus at some of our town’s most acclaimed restaurants, including MB Post, Love & Salt, The Strand House…the list goes on.

There are many inspiring people in our community that are helping those in need and raising awareness for certain causes. Can you highlight a few of these charitable gems?

There are so many people involved in such great causes it’s hard to pick just a few. The P.S. I Love You Foundation just had an amazingly successful day on the beach with their Adopt A Child for One Day program to help underprivileged kids. Walk With Sally had another fantastic White Light/White Night event last month to support their programs for children whose family members have suffered from cancer. The Manhattan Beach Education Foundation is doing great things throughout the school year for our schools. And Grades of Green – which started here in Manhattan Beach –is now a national movement that’s changing the way our kids think about our environment. Then there’s the Neptunian Woman’s Club, Sandpipers, Manhattan Beach Rotary, Kiwanis… all of whom are extremely active in town. We’re lucky to live in a place where so many people place such high value on thinking beyond themselves.

Downtown Manhattan Beach

We love the Downtown Manhattan Beach Business & Professionals Association! They have several fun-filled community events during the year and we'd like to highlight their next one - the Sunset Beach Party on the AVP Skydeck. It takes place this Thursday, August 17 from 5-8 pm. You can purchase tickets by clicking here.
