The world's biggest and best 10k. Truly a wonderful tradition for runners/walkers of all description.

Let's face it, it's the reason you didn't give up on your New Year's resolution in February. Too many people and not enough road at this event. Be prepared to run in a giant pack for the first few miles.

What's not fun about running a 5K where a city comes out to cheer on the runners in droves?!?! People host bloody mary parties and invite the runners to stop by. Great event in a great city!

If you like running in crowds, this is the event for you. The scenery in the San Marco portion of the run makes the event worth running in crowds. It never fails that there will be self entitled runners that think its ok to run...More

Do you love races? This race is amazing. My family ran it for years and I could not understand why anyone would want to run 9 miles on a Saturday morning... OMG! I did my first in 2006 and everyone since. The city, the fans,...More
