Super Bowl Sunday 10K/5k still a hit after 41 years

Thousands of runners came out early Sunday morning as the weekend’s downpours took a break. It was just long enough for the 41st annual Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K/5K, the brainchild of the late developer Les Guthrie.

Guthrie thought it would be a great way to market the harbor and pier area. The run proved to be an instant hit, drawing thousands of runners each year.

The run included three races: a 5 kilometer, 10 kilometer, and the Baby Buggy 10 kilometer for those will small children. With the cool, wet weather, runners were thankful organizers brought back the long-sleeved T-shirts.

The scenery-packed route led runners through south Redondo Beach, taking them past the the larger-than-life Wyland whale mural featured on the AES power plant, King Harbor, and by local shops dotting the Riviera Village. With competitive runners, casual, or fans just looking to exert some energy before the big game, the race was a perfect opportunity to boost endorphins.

Like past iterations, the family event encouraged runners to dress up for a chance to win the costume contest.

27-year-old Omar Gonzalez came in first clocking 32:19.  First female was 25-year-old Grace Graham-Zamudio clocking 36:45.
