Although it’s FREE to register for the Pinkathon San Francisco, this is absolutely a FUNDRAISER for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF)! We expect 100% of participants to make a voluntary donation to BCRF to the best of their ability. We keep expenses super low so that 100% of your donation goes directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the top-rated breast cancer charity in America!
We provide NO Trail Markings, NO Aid Stations, NO Official Times, and NO Awards! We DO provide: printed and downloadable MAPS with locations of water and bathrooms along the course, free coffee and bagels at the start, a free Zumba warmup led by Sandra Cano, a great Pinkathon Raffle with great prizes, gear bag storage, and LOTS of great people of all ages and abilities, running around wearing PINK (optional) to support a good cause
The course will NOT be marked! This is a *FAT ASS* Run. In ultrarunning lingo, a *fat ass run* has no fees, no aid stations, no trail markings, and no timing. Everyone is on their own. For the Pinkathon San Francisco, we DO have MAPS and turn-by-turn directions . These maps also tell you where to find drinking fountains and bathrooms along the way.
Voluntary donations in any amount are strongly encouraged to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, where @ 90% of your donations go directly towards breast cancer research programs. This is the highest rated breast cancer charity in the USA. All Donations made to BCRF through the links on our site are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
