7th Annual Santa Monica Classic 5K/10K This Sunday:

More than 4,000 runners are expected to gather in Santa Monica for the seventh annual Santa Monica Classic this Sunday, May 20.

The event, which includes both 5K & 10K races, will continue the tradition of raising awareness for the environmental non-profit Heal the Bay.

Runners will race along the streets of Santa Monica on a point-to-point course that ends just steps away from the world-famous Santa Monica Pier.

Following the event, all participants – donning their finisher t-shirts and wayfarer sunglasses – can visit an exciting finish line expo at the pier that features nutrition, fitness and health-related vendors, as well as an awards ceremony with eco-friendly recycled glass trophies.

New this year is a $1,050 prize purse that will be split among the first three male and female finishers of the 10K race.

Organizers plan to grow the prize purse in the years ahead to help attract top local competitors.

Runners still have time to sign up for the Santa Monica Classic.

Registration and pre-race packet pick-up will be available on Saturday, May 19, at Sports Chalet on 11801 West Olympic Boulevard in West Los Angeles from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or near the start line at 2600 Barnard Way in Santa Monica beginning at 6:30 a.m. on race day.

The first 2,000 runners to pick up their race packets will receive a Sport Chalet Mystery Card valued between $5 and $100 for merchandise at that store location.

The cards are valid only on Saturday. Coca Cola, Assil Eye Institute, XioMega3 and LA Sports Massage will also have exhibits with free samples and massages.

“The Santa Monica Classic is a great course with fantastic views of the beach, so it’s a perfect way for runners to kick off their summer racing season,” said LA MARATHON LLC Chief Operating Officer Nick Curl. “There is still time to register. Sign up and join us Sunday morning for a fun event.”
