The Best Way to Start Your Summer!
Start your summer on the right foot in beautiful Manhattan Beach. Bring the whole family and run/walk during the lowest tide of the season. Race out and back along the water's edge, then stay and play at the beach and enjoy the many fine bars and restaurants in downtown Manhattan Beach. You won't find anything else like it!

The MB5K starts and finishes under the Manhattan Beach Pier. Race out and back north to the jetty at 45th Street. The miles are marked with splits and "kick" markers from 400m to go guarantee your best finish. The super low tide creates a perfect running surface of hard packed sand like a dirt road so running with or without shoes is an option (the faster athletes tend to wear shoes). One can even wear track spikes! Baby joggers work great and are encouraged as the kids love being that close to the sea.
