“Run the Course” at the Grand Prix 5K Run!

The Grand Prix 5K Run will take place on the world-famous Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach race course! The start/finish line will be on Shoreline Drive, and the course will include S. Pine Avenue, Seaside Way and feature its own hairpin turn at Shoreline and Ocean Blvd. – just like the one that Indy cars navigate every year!

Entry fees and other proceeds from the Grand Prix 5K Run will go to benefit the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach, a 501 (c)(3) publicly supported organization whose purpose is to raise funds, through a series of charitable events held in conjunction with the Grand Prix. With the Foundation’s low administrative costs, approximately 90 cents of every dollar raised goes to benefit Long Beach charities every year. Since its inception in 1991, the Foundation has raised more than $4 million.
