Family Teams & Finisher Tee Reveal

Keepin’ It In The Family

The Manhattan Beach 10k loves family and so we’ve created our event for families to race together. It is a way to make positive, healthy choices, while sparking a little competition! We offer 7 different family team categories comprised of 2 runners each. We are highlighting a few of those teams who participated in 2018 and asked them some questions about their experiences with the race:

  1. What is your most memorable MB10k moment?

  2. Do you have any race day traditions?

  3. Do you run together?

  4. What is your race day strategy?

  5. What is your favorite “unofficial” finish line?

1st Place Father-Daughter

Abby’s Answers - She was also the 1st Place Female in 2018, btw!

1. My most memorable MB10k was in 2009. It was my second year running the race, and I was in the eighth grade. I dipped under the 50-minute mark for the first time and won my age division. The overwhelming support from the community all along the course and sense of accomplishment after beating my time from the previous year hooked me on the sport of running. It led me to join the Mira Costa Cross Country team the following fall and eventually continue my competitive running career in college at the University of Pennsylvania.

2. I don't like to be hung up on specific rituals or superstitions because these things can sometimes be out of your control on race day. 

3. We have never run side-by-side during the actual race but have run hundreds of miles together in training.

4. I was excited to be back home and have the opportunity to race the MB 10k for the first time since high school. Years of training and pacing have taught me to have a good grasp on what a comfortably hard pace should feel like. I trusted my training and racing instincts to lead me to a consistent performance and strong finishing time.

Joe’s Answers

1. The most memorable moment was my first MB10k in 2008.  It was memorable because during the last mile of the race, my 12-year-old daughter Abby passed me on the strand.  This was also her first MB10k.  From that moment on, I knew she would be a running phenom.  I’ve been chasing her since.

2. To get the extra kick, I must have my double concentrated coffee 1.5 hours before the race.  No exceptions.  No substitutions.

3. Yes, if you count trying to keep up with the fastest woman at the 2018 MB10k.  When we run together, I always end up with a good workout.

4. My racing strategy involves careful pacing based on my workouts.  Once I hit the strand, it is all-out, leaving nothing in the tank.

5. I haven’t reached or seen it yet.  Life is short.  The road is long.  I have to hurry.

1st Place Sister-Sister

Noelle’s Answers

1. This past year my nephew Kolin, Kristen’s son, ran his first ever MB10k race and first 10k at 9 years old!  Powered by the sugar doughnut my nephew inhaled on mile 4, Kolin held it, the doughnut, down the entire race and finished 3rd in his age group!  We’ve successfully passed along the family tradition of running the MB10k to the next Lem generation. 

2. Race day tradition is that we all meet at the finish line, snap a group photo with the MB Pier in the background, head to the hometown fair later that day for games and the beer and wine garden!

3/4. We don’t run together as sisters because we have different pacing and running styles but we meet up before and after the race.  Race day we decide if we are going to make it a fun run  (not run for time)  or if we are going to try run hard and beat our PR’s (Personal Records).  Also, we either start at the front of the race line or back so we don’t have to dodge around people and jeopardize our race times.

5. Shellback is our favorite “official” finish line! The race is not to the finish line, but to the bar!!! Gotta go to Shelly’s and grab a recovery cocktail post-race!

Alex & John’s Answers

1. A: I don't know, seeing all the bands?
J: Making it up and over Rosecrans the first time I ran.

2. A: Painting "MIRA COSTA" on our chests and wearing pink shorts.
J: I always start in the upper lane on Ardmore.

3/4. A: Start out comfortable and get faster throughout the race.
J: We run at the same time but I can't keep up with Alex anymore.

5. A: The Fresh Bros tent.
J: In 2018, Shellback.

2019 Finisher Tee

The Unofficial Finish Line

Per tradition, you really haven’t finished the #mb10k until you enjoy a beverage at Shellback Tavern! We took a moment to chat with owner Bob Beverly about why this is the obvious next stop after the race.

Shellback Tavern is the “Unofficial Finish Line” for the MB10k, tell us how you got that title.

The tradition began with the very first race with Shellback Tavern opening early for the race crowd. In the early days it was a lot of can beer to go which was consumed on the street!

Chris Erskine of the Los Angeles Times wrote about Shellback Tavern in August and it was love at first sight for him. What makes people fall in love with Shellbacks?

We have a simple rule. Offer a decent product at a fair price in a friendly environment and you can't go wrong! We are known as a casual non pretentious neighborhood joint. All customers treated with respect and equally. At any time you may find the LA Kings or Galaxy. Mark Cuban has his table. TV personalities and rock stars. We are geared for good times for all.

How long have you been a sponsor of the Manhattan Beach 10k?

Russ Lesser approached us about being an official sponsor about 7 years ago but we have always helped out where needed at the finish area.

Have you run in any of the races yourself?

I personally have not raced but many in my family have participated over the years. I have never missed cheering on the runners.
