SF Mad Dash - 5K Costume Run & After-Party!

On Oct 30th, we invite everyone to run, walk and party through Golden Gate Park at our 5th 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 goody bag.  (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 a food truck(s), a refreshment from our bar and soak up some of post-race entertainment 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.

And it’s all for a great cause! All proceeds will benefit the Sunset Coop Nursery School, a beloved community institution operating in the Outer Sunset since 1940.
