That's right. The ONLY race on Christmas Day will be happening at the Manhattan Beach Pier. In fact, we like it so much we are going to do it twice! Once at 3pm for those who want to get back in time for dinner, and again at 5:30pm for those who want the traditional NIGHT RUN complete with glow necklaces, luminarias, and the lowest tide of the season. Run, walk, or baby jog along the sea by candlelight. Bring the family for a glorious holiday evening of adventure. Register now at!

Cool t-shirts and glow necklaces for every pre-registered participant. Unique awards and a chance to stand on the podium for the top five in all 28 age divisions. Don't miss the real luminarias lighting the course and finish under the Christmas lights of the Manhattan Beach Pier. Spectacular!

Kids get their own races after the 5k. Choose between the 5k, the 1k, or 400m based on age. Awards to the top 5 and a chance to stand on the podium! Celebrate the Holidays!
