On Sunday, April 3, racing fans and runners of all skill levels and ages will have the opportunity to “run the course” at the 4th Annual Grand Prix 5K, which will benefit local charities through the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach.

Participants will run a two-lap tour of the world-famous Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach race course including Pine Avenue and Seaside Way, with the finish at the official Grand Prix start/finish line on Shoreline Drive. Kids 12 and under can get in on the action with the Kids’ Turbo 1K, which will take place after the main races on a portion of the regular race course. The other two races will be the Elite/Pro 5K (those who can finish the race in under 25 minutes) which will start at 7:30 a.m. and the run for the general public, beginning at 8:00 a.m.

Entry fees for the Grand Prix 5K will be $25 per person for the Elite and Open categories until Jan. 23, with each paid person being entered in a drawing to win a ride in an Acura NSX pace car around the Acura Grand Prix racetrack. The drawing will take place at the conclusion of the 5K.

On Jan. 24, the entry fees will go up to $30 for the Elite and Open categories until Feb. 20, then rise to $40 through March 20 and $45 thereafter. The entry fee entitles each paid runner a finisher medal, an official Grand Prix 5K t-shirt, post-race refreshments and two complimentary Friday general admission tickets to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, a $74 value. In addition, there will be activities in the 5K festival area at the conclusion of the run.

The Kid’s Turbo 1K entry fee will be $10 until Feb. 20 – increasing to $15 through race day – and include a finisher medal and post-race refreshments.
