2019 Across the Bay 12k & 415k - Run the Bay Challenge Event #2
Benefiting Edgewood Center for Children and Families

36th Annual Across the Bay 12k & 415k

Sunday, July 14, 2019


If you are registering for the event after 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 13th, you will need to pick up your race bib on race morning.  Race day bib pickup will begin at 6 a.m. at Aquatic Park only in San Francisco.


Thirty-six-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.

Run the Bay Challenge: Across the Bay 12k & 415k is the central stop on the "Run the Bay" Challenge Series along with the San Jose 408k "Race to the Row" and The East Bay 510k - 5k/10k.  Run all three and earn yourself a big ol' Run the Bay Challenge Medal. You can register for multiple series events at one time, including Remote Runner for the 408k, by clicking the "Register for Multiple Events" button on the right.
