Hermosa Beach 5000

April 19, 2014 · Hermosa Beach, CA

Distance: 1 mile, 5K

The Best Little Race in Southern California

Come discover why the Hermosa Beach 5000 is unique. Some races claim to be “by the sea,” but only the HB5000 is entirely ocean view with the last half mile over the water itself as you charge up and down the Hermosa Beach Pier. Race, run, skateboard, babyjog, or walk the 5K, then stay and watch the action as the youngsters tear through their individual races. Cool down by enjoying the legendary Hermosa Pier Plaza hospitality and spend the rest of the day by the Pacific Ocean on beautiful Hermosa Beach. Something for everyone!

The 5K

Separate races for Men and Women on the cloverleaf course mean you can run AND see your fellow runners several times while you cover the coolest coastal town around. Go for your personal record.

The Kid’s Races: The Southern California Road Running Championship

Kids 12 and under get their own day in the sun. Separate races for every kid age and gender division ensure the fun. The “criterium style” course out and around the Hermosa Pier makes for awesome viewing and cheering. Finisher medals to all kids. Awards and a chance to stand on the Olympic style podium for the top five in each race.
