Dec 16,2017: The Glowtide 5K

Our traditional holiday run is on Saturday night, December 16th, complete with Glow Necklaces for all, the Black Holiday Shirts, and Unaue Beane Awards in 28 divisions. Run, walk, or baby jog along the sea under the stars. The entire course will be lit by glow sticks to guide you. Bring the whole family, then stay and play at the many fine bars and restaurants in downtown Manhattan Beach. You won’t find anything else like it!


Each event starts and finishes under the holiday lights of the Manhattan Beach Pier. Race out and back north to the jetty at 45th Street. The miles are marked with splits and “kick” markers from 400m to go guarantee your best finish. The super low tide creates a perfect running surface of hard packed sand like a dirt road so running with or without shoes is an option (the faster athletes tend to wear shoes). One can even wear track spikes! Baby joggers work great and are encouraged as the kids love being that close to the sea.
