The Fun Run begins and ends at Fleet Feet Sports – we’ll give you a map of the run route and all details when you arrive.
All donating participants will also get one complementary raffle entry. For those that want to increase their chances at winning, we will also be selling additional raffle tickets for $1 each.
Not a runner? You can still make a donation and arrive fashionably late at 7PM at Fleet Feet Sports to enjoy the party! You don’t have to be in running shorts to enjoy decorating the gluten-free baked goods. It’s always a good idea to stay hydrated, so beer and wine will be available to quench you thirst.
About the event:
Creativity and Fitness all in one evening! This event celebrates the winner of ArtSeed’s T-shirt design contest. For a $10 donation, participants will receive an Adidas T-shirt printed with the winning design. We will raffle off prizes from Adidas Fleet Feet and various other local businesses. All the proceeds will benefit ArtSeed, an arts-education non-profit located in the Presidio of San Francisco.
At 6pm participants will register to run a scenic 3-mile loop from the Marina through Russian Hill and North Beach. After the run, everyone is invited to the celebration. For those donating participants that just want to attend the party, festivities will start at 7pm. Participants can enjoy delicious food and beverages.
Just because the design contest is over, it doesn’t mean that we can’t be creative. We will offer a cupcake decorating station so everyone can show off their creativity. Single Serving Sweets will provide gluten-free baked goods for decorating.
Creatively designed desserts should also be washed down with creatively designed beer! ArtSeed board member James Joves will provide home-crafted beer for those participants that enjoy a cool beverage after their run.
Fleet Feet San Francisco and Marathon Matt have put together many successful half marathon training programs over the last few years. Consequently, each program offered a different t-shirt design. All of those t-shirts will also be displayed for everyone to see. Shoe store? Art Gallery? Art Studio? Fleet Feet San Francisco does it all!
