BGCSF is committed to inspiring and enabling all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. Sports Basement shares this commitment to youth and our communities. Whether you're looking to do your personal best, looking for an excuse to dress up or just want a fun day with the kids in the park, there is something for everyone. Come for the race, stay for the after-party at Sports Basement Presidio! There will be food trucks, music, games and great deals throughout the store and much much more! Event details and schedule October 17 4:00 PM PDT - Packet Pick Up - Sports Basement Bryant, Presidio, Sunnyvale, Novato & Berkeley   October 18 4:00 PM PDT - Packet Pick Up - Sports Basement Bryant, Presidio, Sunnyvale, Novato & Berkeley   October 19 9:00 AM PDT - Kids 1 Mile Challenge Start   October 19 10:00 AM PDT - 5K Start   October 19 10:00 AM PDT - After Party FAQ: What are the race fees going towards?All proceeds from this event will be going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco.

The Main Post is less than a 1 mile walk to the start, so plan for an extra 15-20 minutes. Due to limited parking, we highly recommend utilizing car services like Uber and Lyftto avoid having to locate parking. There will be monitored bike parking as well at the Sports Basement.
