Hermosa Beach 5000 Low Turnout

By: Brian Adler

Last Friday the Hermosa Beach 5000 was held on the Hermosa Beach pier and strand. I have noticed that over the years (but mostly this year)  the turnout of this fundraising event has gotten smaller and smaller . This may be a sign of low advertising, competition, or just plain old loss of interest. The eleven year old race has unusually stayed very consistent in always having a large amount of people coming. I do not know if the twelve year olds are going to the 5k now instead of the mile, or just not coming.
