Proceeds from the 5K race and 1 mile run will benefit the schools of the Brisbane Elementary School District with support from the BEST/PTO.
Both Reach for a Star 5K races start and finish at Sierra Point in Brisbane, CA (the city of stars), just south of San Francisco. The mostly flat course loops around the Sierra point area before going along the San Francisco Bay Trail (bike path), giving participants views of the bay and possibly even some pelicans. The 5K course is USATF certified (certification# CA15001) so that times run in this race would be eligible for records or official Personal Records (PRs).
We will have a separate heat for women this year. ALL women competiting in the USATF Grand Prix should enter this heat. USATF membership is not required to enter this heat and any woman looking to compete for time are welcome to run in this heat. If you are a female under 18 looking to compete in this heat, please contact us for a $10 discount code.
This heat is open to runners, joggers, and walkers of all abilities. USATF men are expected to compete in this heat.
T-shirts are only guaranteed to those who pre-register by March 5, 2018. Check out the registration page to learn more about prices and how to register.
