We offer a women’s 5K, an all-comers 5K, and a 1-mile community race on Memorial Day!

What goals do you have in mind?  Attempt to achieve your star at our gentle (not hilly) 5K or 1M course in The City of Stars (Brisbane, CA).  Located right by the Southern border of San Francisco. Great for beginners looking to finish their first 5K or veteran runners shooting for a fast time.  Race Day will be Memorial Day (Monday) on May 27, 2019.  Finisher awards will be presented to those who reach their star by race day.

Proceeds from the 5K races and mile run will benefit Brisbane’s Little League Baseball. The 5Ks are part of the USATF Pacific Association Road Grand Prix.

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# CA18001) so that times run in this race would be eligible for records or official Personal Records (PRs).

Women’s Only 5K (Competitive) – 8:00am start

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.

All Comers 5K (all genders) – 9:00am start

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 May 18, 2019. Check out the registration page to learn more about prices and how to register.

The Reach for a Star 5K is part of the Pacific Association-USA Track & Field (PAUSATF) Road Grand Prix.

It was a wet afternoon at the inaugural Running of the Elves tonight in Elk Grove, but that didn’t dampen these runners spirits. Love to see the smiles. 😊 👍 Race Results: bit.ly/38h3HK6 #runningoftheelves @CityofElkGrove @district56eg pic.twitter.com/FDOkSFUSJZ
