Seems like most the winners from the race, lately, have been from Africa. If this is a money making event, maybe Cerritos should hold a marathon too. City of La Palma hold a small marathon, so does city of Long Beach, time the city should get involved, hosted by the famous Cerritos Auto Mall; time the mall give back to the community, since in 2015, sold over 61,000 cars, selling more cars then compared to 1993.
