More Fun & Post Race Party

This year we are offering a virtual goodie bag! We’d like to thank Presenting Sponsor – UCLA Health, Major Sponsor – Dogtopia South Bay, and Contributing Sponsor Sweetgreen for their contributions. 

Make sure to walk over to Rock & Brews right after the race for the awards ceremony. Between 8:30am and 10:45am they will have a buffet, 52 draft beers on tap, and killer Bloody Marys. Celebrate your race and the chance to win raffle prizes. A portion of the profits from the Post Race Party will be donated to the Redondo Beach Educational Foundation!
