The city of Grover Beach hosted its annual "Dune Run Run & Walk" a 5k Sunday morning.

For the 31st year, several city organizations, families and individual runners came out to celebrate the Grover beach community.

Runners met at 8 a.m. at the end of West Grand Ave. to run on the beach and boardwalk.

This is an annual event hosted by the city's parks and recreation department.

This year, organizers decided to change up the course so it passes through the beach and finishes up at the boardwalk.

"I think from a pure time stand point, running on pavement can be a faster experience, but one of the beauties of living on the Central Coast is our beach and being able to run on the beach for our event is a great way to enjoy the morning," said Matthew Bronson, Grover Beach city manager.

Bronson not only helped put on the event, but he also won an award for finishing in first place.

Medals were awarded to the first, second and third place winners in all age and gender categories.
