Please join fellow breast cancer survivors Ellen Holbrook and “Mama Lisa” Felder for the PINKATHON San Francisco! This is a Free, Unsanctioned, Do-It-Yourself *Fat Ass* Fun Run/Walk – any distance – to help end breast cancer!
We provide NO Trail Markings, NO Aid Stations, NO Official Times, and NO Awards! We DO provide downloadable MAPS 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 for the Marathon or 50K distances. This is a *FAT ASS* Run. In ultrarunning lingo, a *fat ass run* has no fees, no aid, 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.
We have no permits and no insurance. We want to keep expenses minimal so 100% of your donations go to our charity – BCRF. If anyone along the way asks you what you are doing, just tell them you are “just running with friends”.
7:45 AM – Pinkathon Raffle for participants who have made a donation of $25 or more to our charity, BCRF. You will receive 1 Raffle Ticket for each multiple of $25 that you donate. For instance, donate $100 and you get 4 raffle tickets.
