The 56th annual Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix will be held at Live Oak Park on Valley Drive from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., featuring races for amateur and professional cyclists alike. The popular Chevron Kids' Zone will return, featuring t-shirts, games, and treats for kids ages 2-12, along with the Kids' Community Race at noon.
This year's race is expected to have an additional element of excitement, as the race is being run counter-clockwise (instead of the usual clockwise). Riders are competing for $21,000 in total prize money for eight USA cycling races.
On Sunday, drivers will not be able to access Valley and Ardmore between 27th Street and 15th Street; traffic will be limited on Valley/Ardmore between Manhattan Beach Boulevard and 15th Street so the area is best to avoid.
Additionally, three downtown parking lots will be closed on Sunday: the Civic Center parking lot at 15th Street, the Valley/Ardmore parking lot at 13th Street, and the downtown Manhattan Beach post office parking lot.
