Sunday, April 8: The Grand Prix Foundation will present the inaugural Grand Prix 5K Run/Walk, which will start at 8 a.m.
Participants will have the unique opportunity to “run the course” on the Grand Prix race circuit – the first time the course has been open to a running event in more than 35 years. The 5K course will start at the official Grand Prix start/finish line on Shoreline Drive, then head up Pine Avenue and Seaside Way, returning to Shoreline Drive on a two-lap tour of the circuit.
The “early bird” entry fee for the Grand Prix 5K is $30 per person until March 14, when the fee goes up to $35. On April 7 and race day, April 8, the fee will be $40. The entry fee entitles each paid runner a finisher medal, an inaugural Grand Prix 5K t-shirt and a complimentary Friday general admission ticket to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, a $33 value. More information can be found here.
Race Weekend – Friday, April 13: Grand Prix Foundation Monte Carlo Night will feature casino-style gambling from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and includes a poker tournament. Winners vie for prizes and the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach and the causes it supports benefit. Local philanthropists, community supporters, business leaders and various race series drivers are invited to help raise thousands of dollars. Race attire is welcome! Come straight from the track, if you like, relax and taste food from local restaurants.
