On Saturday, 8/25 (the day before race day) we'll have a mandatory packet pick up for those who register after 8/12 at Sports Basement Presidio from 10am - 4pm, where all runners will receive 20% off at checkout with their bib! Haven't received your bib in the mail yet? Stop by our packet pick at Sports Basement Presidio at this time and we'll reissue on for you!
There will be free shuttle buses from the After Party at Marina Green back to Justin Herman Plaza running from 9:00am - Noon.
There will be a water station at Justin Herman Plaza.
There is one water station along the 5K route and three water stations along the 12K route. First is approximately 2.25 miles (on Van Ness near the municipal pier). The second is approximately 4.5 miles at the west end of Crissy Field. This station also serves as the third water station as runners return from the 12K, approximately 5.5 miles.
There will be water tables after the finish lines.
Portable toilets are located at the start (Justin Herman Plaza) and After Party (Marina Green).
We ask strollers to line up towards back of the starting line. One thing to be aware of is the Shuttle Buses are Yellow School buses. There are a couple that are handicapped accessible which can accommodate strollers but sometimes there is a wait to catch the shuttle back to the start. If you have a stroller that folds it possibly can fit on the regular buses.
Want to switch the course distance? If you registered for the 12K you can run/walk either the 5K or 12K with your 12K bib/chip without switching bib/chip. If you registered for the 5K you must switch your bib/chip to the 12K or you will be disqualified when you cross the finish line. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you don't need it, but if you do there are medical tents at Justin Herman Plaza and at the After Party at Marina Green. There will also be ambulances on standby at the start and finish. If you have a medical need while out on the course, let one of the course monitors know or ask another runner to find one for you.
At 11:00 AM all walkers and runners that are still on the course will be asked to move to the sidewalk to allow the roads to be re-opened to traffic. The finish line will be open until 12 PM and the After Party will be open until 1:00 PM. Sorry no dogs, bikes, roller skates, skate boards, scooters, etc allowed on the course. The race goes on rain or shine!
We will provide bags for transporting small personal items and articles of clothing only from the start area to the finish. If bringing your own bag it must be transparent and no larger than 12”x 12” x 7” and marked clearly with your bib number.
No backpacks, large bags or containers will be transported.
Oral-B Glide Floss, race officials, and Cumulus radio representatives are not liable for any lost, damaged or stolen items. We strongly recommend that you do not place any valuable items (phones, cameras, keys, drivers licenses, etc) in your bag. This is a courtesy check. Please note: the last truck leaves at 8:40am.
