The 58th Annual Manhattan Beach Grand Prix was held on a beautiful summer day in the beachside community of Manhattan Beach. A generous and equal prize list of $8,000 was offered for both the Pro 1/2 Men’s and Women’s 1-3 race.
The Manhattan Mile elite runners race returned this year with a $1,000 first prize to the fastest man and woman runner and the popular Kids Races made it a fun day for the family, with a great opportunity to get more kids on bikes!
