Mar Vista Man Takes Sixth Place in Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K

Kevin Purcell took part in the annual Redondo Beach Super Bowl 10K run on Sunday. He previously won the Catalina Marathon in 2011.

More than 6,000 runners competed in this year's Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 10K/5K Run/Walk in South Redondo Beach, and local Mar Vista resident Kevin Purcell placed 6th overall in the 10K race.

Purcell, 37, completed the race in 00:34:46.

No stranger to long (and short) distance runs, Patch interviewed Purcell back in 2011 when he won the Catalina Marathon, becoming the first person to ever win The American Trail Championship by winning not just the Catalina Marathon, but also the   the Buffalo Run Half Marathon and the Rose Bowl Marathon.

Sunday's event featured a 5K run/walk, a 10K baby buggy race and a standard 10K race at the Redondo Beach Marina.

In addition to Purcell, 10 Venice residents successfully completed the 10K race; four Venice residents completed the 5K race, and one Mar Vista resident completed the 5K race.
