A little morning rain was not enough to keep runners of all ages from descending upon Doheny State Beach on Mar. 2 to take part in the 6th Annual Festival of Whales Grunion Run. The race, which started and ended on the beach trail, featured a 10K, 5K and Kid’s 1K run.
The morning started off with the 10K, which was won by Miles Galla-Rini of Orange.
The runners competing in the popular 5K followed. Owen Kiley of Pasadena and Claire Collinson claimed the first-place medal for the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively.
The Kid’s 1K fun run started off with a bang, as the youngsters sprinted off the starting line and completed a one-lap loop around the Doheny State Beach parking lot.
