Since 2003 Run Seal Beach® has given $1,312,510 back to our community


Run Seal Beach® is a non-profit organization whose charter is to raise funds and awareness for recreation or fitness programs or services to benefit the greater Seal Beach Community including Rossmoor and Los Alamitos.  In 2015 we have awarded a total of $140,090 to 88 organizations that encompassed a wide range of community program needs.  Since 2003, RSB has given back $1,312,510 to our community, representing more than 114 organizations through the years, touching thousands of residents, students, servicemen and those who are served by our community.


The non-profit charter has been in existence since 1999, although the organization has sponsored runs for 41 years.  The race has continued to grow the race in its attendance and contributions each year and all the net proceeds are given back to the local communities primarily in the form of grants. 

In 2011, we  established a portion of our funds to be distributed through Director's Awards. These are awards are at the sole discretion of the Run Seal Beach® Board of Directors and cannot be applied for.  

Run Seal Beach® is planned, managed and executed 100% by volunteers, with no salaries drawn for any administration so that 100% of available proceeds are given back to the community each year.
