Bay Area Human Race

My love/hate relationship with running started during my formative years when I joined a students running group in 3rd grade, and my competitive nature pushed me to stay with the front of the pack despite my less than excellent fitness level. Marin, however, has been a pioneer for running races for over a century. I participated in several, the most famous being the Dipsea race, which started in 1905 making the oldest trail race in the country. Those rightfully deterred by the epic peaks need not fret as there are so many runs to participate in, all varying in length and difficulty. The race that I enjoyed the most – due to its relaxed nature and sideline crowds – was the Marin Human Race.

This weekend the 34th Marin Human Race is taking place, giving you the chance to participate in a noncompetitive race for a good cause. There is no lack of studies when it comes to the benefit of cardiovascular exercise. Everything from improved mood and reduced risk of disease like diabetes and metabolic syndrome to the possibility of living longer. Run, jog or even bring your dog for a walk. All fitness levels are welcome. Get your blood pumping, and donate to your favorite charity, school or community group to support a meaningful cause.

If You Go

When: Saturday May 7, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Where: Marin Center Fairgrounds, 10 Avenue of the Flags in San Rafael

Cost: $20-$50


Please be aware that events may occasionally be cancelled or postponed by the promoter. We always suggest you contact the promoter or venue to confirm for a particular day.
