There will be a water station at Justin Herman Plaza.

There is one water station along the 5K route and three water stations along the 12K route. First is approximately 2.25 miles (on Van ness near the municipal pier). The second is approximately 4.5 miles at the west end of Crissy Field. This station also serves as the third water station as runners return from the 12K, approximately 5.5 miles.

There will be water tables after the finish lines.


Portable toilets are located at the start (Justin Herman Plaza) and After Party (Marina Green).


We ask strollers to line up towards back of the starting line. One thing to be aware of the Shuttle Buses are Yellow School buses. There are a couple that are handicapped accessible which can accommodate strollers but sometimes there is a wait to catch the shuttle back to the start. If you have a stroller that folds it possibly can fit on the regular buses. You don't need to register the child in the stroller unless you want them to get a finisher medal and goodie bag.

Changing Events

Want to switch the course distance? If you registered for the 12K you can run/walk either the 5K or 12K with your 12K bib/chip without switching bib/chip. If you registered for the 5K you must switch your bib/chip to the 12K or you will be disqualified when you cross the finish line.

To switch to the 12K:

  1. Race morning you'll need to bring your bib/chip and check or cash in the amount of (the difference in the race fee you paid when you registered online and the race day price is $70 for the 12K and $65 for the 5K.
  2. Go to the WILL CALL Tent at Justin Herman Plaza (pick up your bib/chip if you didn't get it in the mail)
  3. Then, go to the Will Call "Solution/Problem" table to finalize your transition to the 12K.


We hope you don't need it, but if you do there are medical tents at Justin Herman Plaza and at the After Party at Marina Green. There will also be ambulances on standby at the start and finish. If you have a medical need while out on the course, let one of the course monitors know or ask another runner to find one for you.
