SF Mad Dash - 5K Costume Run & After-Party!
On Halloween, we invite everyone to run, walk and party through Golden Gate Park at our 4th annual SF Mad Dash 5K Costume Run! All ages are welcome to join us to run, walk and party at SF Mad Dash with all registered runners receiving a race timed numbered bib and a commemorative SF Mad Dash drawstring bag containing a banana, water and lots of other cool stuff. (Kids 12 and under need not register and instead of a race timed bib and goody bag will receive a numbered bib and a high five.)
Then, whether you run in the 5K race or not, join us for the after-party at the Polo Field Stables. Enjoy some delicious food from Bacon Bacon food truck, a refreshment from our bar and soak up some of post-race entertainment including a live performance by Sunset Co-Op’s own The Bumpity Bumps.
All of the day’s events will be MC’d by KFOG’s own Renee Richardson including post-race festivities such as runner’s prizes, costume contest, raffle, music and fun kid activities for the little ones including a bounce house.
This year’s raffle has some great prizes as well with $1000 in cash going to the winner, second place will receive an Apple Sports iWatch and third place a $150 gift card for Wayfare Tavern.
And it’s all for a great cause! All proceeds will benefit the Sunset Coop Nursery School, a beloved community institution.
This year when you register you can help the fundraising effort for Sunset Coop Nursery School by directly by collecting sponsorship for your participation in SF Mad Dash. Even if you can't attend you can still help us with the donation directly to Sunset Co-op Nursery School by visiting our donation page here
