'Run, Have Fun and Support a Great Cause!'

 

Time: Saturday, September 10 · 3:30pm - 7:00pm

Location: Presidio Recreation Area, Sports Basement

610 Old Mason St.

San Francisco, CA

Sponsors: Injinji Performance Toe Socks, Brooks Running, Sports Basement, Diakadi Gym in San Francisco

Details: September 10, 2011, 3:30 pm starting from Sports Basement (610 Old Mason Ln.) in the Presidio in San Francisco, CA. Come early; parking is available in the Sports Basement parking lot. The course will take you on a loop through the beautiful trails/paths in the Presidio; the specific course will be announced later and will include a "drop down" option for those desiring a slightly shorter distance. This is a bib-less charity fun run, although they will have volunteers at key points along the run directing folks and there will be an aid station half-way through, although you may want to bring a water bottle. Participants will be treated to some great BBQ food afterward in the Sports Basement Community Area complete with burgers, veggie burgers, chicken/veggie kebabs, chips and drinks immediately following the run. After the run, around 5:20 pm, stick around while you chow down to hear the president of World Harvest Mission, William Kasiyre, talk about the projects you'll be supporting with your donation.

At approx. 5:30 pm (give or take), you won't want to miss their special guest, pitcher Jeremy Affeldt of the San Francisco Giants.  Among other things, he will speak about the work he and his foundation are doing overseas to end slavery, protect children and build water wells.

Raffle: There will be a raffle for all in attendance who donate for Brooks running gear, Giants tickets for later in September, and 2- 1 Hr. Training Sessions at Diakadi Gym.

Cost: Minimum donation for the run is $35, which includes a pair of Injinji Performance Toe Socks; people can give more as they are led.   Runners also wishing to receive a pair of the new Injinji EX-celerator Compression Socks can give a minimum donation of $60.  Non-runners may partake in the BBQ for a minimum $10 cash donation. All participants will receive a 10% off coupon for use at Sports Basement that day. In addition, 10% of all purchases made by our group at Sports Basement that day will be donated by Sports Basement towards well-building projects in Uganda. All proceeds benefit the Uganda Well-Building Program for World Harvest Mission. Volunteers are needed and greatly appreciated!

Registration: Confirm your participation and/or attendance by replying directly to this Event. Make your PayPal/Credit Card donation at www.seegundyrun.com and clicking on the "ChipIn" icon in the upper right corner. Give me a heads up on your shoe size so I can get the right socks for you. Donations by cash or check made to "World Harvest Mission" can be made on race day for those late confirming runners. Those who sign up on race day may have to wait for delivery of their socks at a later date pending supplies.

Feel free to invite other runners, grubbers or volunteers! Kids are welcome!
