This event is a nice way to start the day. One leg of the race goes by the beach, pretty flat course one section has a small incline. I recommend this course for any casual or novice runner. Just be careful of the dogs when you run, dogs are were allowed on this course last year.
Excellent run for the 4th of July. A good run by the beach and coast. Scott is one of finest runners i have seen at this event.
My 7 year old and I ran this and it was a lot of fun. Pretty flat, beautiful scenery and lots of fun, encouraging people to run along side of. Some people really get decked out in patriotic attire which makes it even more light hearted and fun.
I ran this 5k with my 9 year old son. What a lovely way to start the 4th of July! I like the size of this event (not too big, not too small); the scenery is great (even when overcast, it's wonderful to run along the ocean!); the course is flat; and the spirit of the race strikes the perfect note!! Ran Pacific Palisades last year, and they only serve water. Not here. At Redondo Beach, they had great bagels, oranges, bananas, etc. And some good vendors. I'll definitely run this one again!
1st time running this event, it was a nice run. My kids participated in the dash and 1/4 mile. There were a lot of kids, wished they would have maybe divided up some of the groups even more (some kids fell trying to start). Great event!
Great run and fast course. The weather couldn't of been better. Will definitely run next year. Watch out for those strollers!
I love this race. The course is super easy and it's a great way to kick off the holiday. I especially love all the dogs who run with us!
