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).
