The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce would like to set the record straight with regards to our upcoming Redondo Beach Super Bowl Sunday 10-K Run, which we are planning to hold on Jan. 31, 1988, or whatever date the 1988 Super Bowl will be held. In your article (Times, Oct. 8) you mistitled it by saying: "Promoter Pulling 10-K Race Out of Redondo Beach." This is not the case.
The Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce initiated this run nine years ago and utilized Hans Albrecht as race promoter-director.
This is not a run that Albrecht owns, that he can move to Long Beach as he referred to as Al Davis would move the Raiders.
The Redondo Beach City Council has every year approved this run to be hosted and/or sponsored by the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce and the chamber has historically contracted with Hans Albrecht to promote and direct the event.
Just because Hans has promoted and directed this event for us for the past several years does not give him the right to assume that it is his to take elsewhere.
