Nation’s oldest, one day bicycle race exciting day for both racing fans and families
The Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix features nine races catering to all levels of cyclists, as well as a wide range of community racers. The fan favorite kids’ races for children between the ages of two and 12, will be held at 12:30 p.m. Riding either a bicycle or a tricycle, kids compete for various prizes and each participant receives an official race number, t-shirt, medal and goodie bag. The day’s premier races are the Women’s Pro 1-3 race at 1 p.m. and the Men’s Pro 1-2 race at 2 p.m. where some of the Nation’s top Pro riders compete for equal $8,000 purses.
The Manhattan Mile Run for Education, a one mile running race, will be held at 12 noon and feature Men’s and Women’s Elite Races, as well a Fun Run. This year’s race will benefit the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation (MBEF) with Chevron matching up to $10,000 in race registration fees.
The always fun Chevron Kids’ Zone for children two through 12 years will also be back this year. This area will be featured at the Start/Finish line and include free t-shirts, face painting, color hair spray, temporary glitter tattoos, hot dogs, cookies, a photo booth, balloon animals, games and prizes.
“We are very excited to have the Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix back after cancelling the past two years due to the pandemic,” said Jill Dunn, Chevron’s Corporate Affairs Representative. “We have always viewed this event as a fun day for families. We are looking forward to once again hosting the Chevron Kids’ Zone and contributing to MBEF by way of matching the Manhattan Mile registration fees. We hope the community will come out and spend the day celebrating with us.”
In addition to the nine races, the Manhattan Mile Run for Education and the Chevron Kids’ Zone, the event will include food vendors and local exhibits.
