Kids' 1/4 Mile

Race day registration from 7 a.m. at the Rose Garden, between the starts on JFK. Both are USA Track & Field (USATF) certified flat fast loop courses, that finish in front of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Within easy walking distance of the starts and offering ample parking in surrounding areas.

10K 5 Mile (approximately)

Due to a Course problem that happened because of a missing monitor, all participants did about 1.2 Miles less than the 10K. We are calling it a 5 Mile (approximately). Actually because everyone ran the same course, it worked out much better and fairer than it would have if half went 1.2 miles further than the other half. We were short of volunteers and a couple of key people had problems and could not make it. This caused a ripple effect throughout the event and other problems in other areas. I am deeply sorry that this happened and learned a tough lesson about event production and promise to not let this happen again. Please forgive me.
This is a great new course, much better than the old double loop. Unfortunately these problems made a disaster out of a jewel. We ran the same course at July 4’s Freedom Road and it was enjoyed by all. The Bridge School thanks you for your participation, making this event a success.
