A Cool Morning Run For The 40th Annual Event
Be sure you’ve got a long-sleeve t-shirt with you – perhaps one from a past event – for it will be a cool morning run for the 8,000 or so people taking part in the 40th annual Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K.
The weather forecast calls for mostly cloudy conditions with a light and cool breeze and a race-time temperature of the mid- to upper-50s. It may warm up, tho, for the post-race beer garden, either, maybe to the upper 70s as the sun may break through the clouds. The daytime high is projected to be 72.
There’s little to no chance of rain and, depending on one’s pace, there could be sun during your run for the gorgeous part of the run down the Esplanade. In beer garden, the sun often warms up racers after a chilly morning.
The race action begins at 7 a.m., with the (too early if you ask me) costume contest and the 1K kids run. The 5K run/walk is at 7:30, the baby buggy 10K is at 8:15 and the 10K is at 8:30 a.m. The beer garden – a race highlight for many of the South Bay’s singles – goes until about 11 a.m.
It starts on Harbor Drive at King Harbor, goes down Catalina Ave., through Riviera Village, down the Esplanade up “The Hill” at the Redondo Pier back to Catalina Ave., and finishes where it ends on Harbor Drive. The beer garden is just to the left of the finish line in Seaside Lagoon.
Registration is $35 in advance, $40 the day before and day of the race.
The run, a South Bay-unique way to begin Super Bowl Sunday, is Feb. 4.
