Racing company profited off subsidies from city of San Diego

An investigation by The San Diego Union-Tribune has found that Elite Racing, a marathon promotion company, has received subsidies from the city of San Diego. According to the article, "The subsidies stem from a nonprofit charity that San Diego-based Elite Racing created that co-hosts the event. It allows the company to cash in on a city policy to charge nonprofits only about half the cost of police services used at special events." Throughout the past 11 years, Elite Racing has received more than $400,000 in subsidies.
