More Details:

Event is a unique relay race for teams of four runners from one corporate entity, in three divisions: Men, Women, and Co-ed (2 men, 2 women). Eadh runner runs with a “satori” –a colorful cloth sash — and passes it to the next relay runner within an exchange zone. Each runner runs a two mile cross country loop in Golden Gate Park. Over $20,000 in random and other prizes!

Rescheduled event is the same as previously annunced, except the start time is one hour later.

Fabulous prizes–economy round trip tickets from SF to Tokyo are drawn from each team category: Male, Female, and Co-ed (6 total tickets, 2 each division). Team decides on their own who gets the tickets. Probably a good idea to decide how chooses ahead of time…

Random individual prize: Two economy RT tickets on ANA Airlines from SF to Tokyo to one participant and companion who put their business card in the proverbial “fish bowl” for random drawing (done at event, must be present to win). Value of tickets is approximately $2,500 each so total random ticket prices, team and individual, total approximately $20,000!

Tickets are subject to restrictions. A member of winning team may transfer their tickets to the spouse/family member of one of their immediate team members.

Secondary prizes for team categories: Fastest team in each category gets a $100 American Express Certificate and reservations for two at a Hilton Hotel in SF for one night. Team decides on their own who gets prizes.

You will be running on the nationally famous course in GG Park near the Polo Fields.
