RACE DAY INFORMATION

VIRTUAL RUN

With so many 49ers Fans looking forward to race day but unable to run due to air quality levels, we are offering a virtual run option where we will send age group winners additional medals for participating! Here is how it works:

Register for VIRTUAL RUN SHIPPING to have your shirt, medal, and bib shipped to your door!

Between now and Nov 30th, run 3 miles using a GPS-enabled fitness app such as Strava, Map My Run, Garmin, or Fitbit. Take a screenshot of your run that gives your total time for 3 miles and the date and time when you ran it, and then email it to info@goldenheartrun.com. We will compile all the results, post them to our website on Dec 1st, and mail out awards. Awards will be mailed out in the following categories:

Top 3 Overall male/female and top 3 in all age groups in 5 year increments from 19 and under all the way to 75+.
