Across the Bay 12k & 415k Post-Race Virtual Run

Thirty-four-years-old, Across the Bay is the second event in 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 in San Francisco. The shuttle ride to the starting area from San Francisco or Sausalito is free!

All participants receive a finisher's medal and race tech tee designed by the local artists at San Franpsycho.

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.
