Across the Bay 12k & 415k

Registration Open Now

Thirty-one-years-old, Across the Bay is the second event, but newest addition to Represent Running's Run the Bay Challenge Series.

Across the Bay is an ode to simpler times when people came out to run on a whim, give their best and high five the finisher next to them — dudes and gals that have been around running and racing Across the Bay since it started in the 80’s.

The 12k features the same USATF certified course as years past -- a point to point journey starting in Sausalito, running across the Golden Gate Bridge, and finishing in Aquatic Park. The 5k starts and finishes at San Francisco.  

REMOTE RUNNING: Can't make it out to San Francisco for race day but still want to participate? Not a problem. Sign up as a Remote Runner and complete your 12k or 5k on your own. You will receive your ceremonial remote racing bib, official race shirt, and finisher's medal the week after the race (if this is your third and final race in the Run the Bay Challenge, your Run the Bay medal will be sent in this package as well). No official timing necessary for Remote Runners, but we encourage you to time your run, take a photo after you finish, and post your unofficial time with your photo to your social networks of choice and send to us via Facebook or email!

NOTE: If you sign up as a regular runner but life happens and you wish to switch, you MUST let us know no later than April 12th. If come race weekend you are no longer able to run in person, we are unable to send you your medal and shirt (i.e., switch you to Remote Runner last minute).
