The 2022 Pinkathon San Francisco will take place on SATURDAY morning, October 22, 2022 starting at 6:30 AM at the San Francisco Ferry Building. Meet in front of the Northwest Entrance of the SF Ferry Building by Gott’s Roadside Restaurant. Look for the Pink Balloons! Public Bathrooms and Drinking Fountains are available just inside the Northwest Entrance of the Ferry Building.
Recommended distances are 50K, 26.2M, 13.1M, 10M, 10K, 5K, a Pink Ribbon Run (4 miler)! For all distances EXCEPT the 50K, the Pink Ribbon 4 miler, the course is out-and-back along the San Francisco waterfront and the Golden Gate Bridge. The 50K includes a LOOP on dirt trails in the Marin Headlands and back to the GG Bridge before heading back to the start. All other distances have a specific turn-around point. We have downloadable Maps and Turn-By-Turn instructions for each distance. Please print out your own maps and instructions before you arrive. We will have a limited number of extra maps and instructions available at the Pinkathon Check-in. Since this is an unofficial and un-timed fun-run, you can start anytime you want and run any distance you want.
*Many thanks to Brian Ladrillono and Michael Li for creating the Pinkathon Course Maps and Descriptions.

50K – We are doing a Clockwise LOOP in the Marin Headlands, with an out and an optional “spur” to FortBaker before going back south over the GG bridge and back to the start/finish. The Travis Marina Bar at the Presidio Yacht Club at Fort Baker (also known as Mike’s Place) is on the 2nd Floor and has bathrooms, water, food for purchase (hotdogs, hamburgers, pizza) and $5 draft beer pints! Cash tips only. This Rest Stop is totally OPTIONAL and may add a little extra distance. From Travis Marina Bar, it is about 8 miles back to the Start/Finish at Gott’s Roadside at the Ferry Building. Pinkathon volunteers will be at Gott’s Roadside until 4 pm PST. If you think you might finish later than 4pm, please stash your gear with a friend or in your car, and don’t leave it with the gear check for the Pinkathon. After 4pm, we will take everything home from the gear check. So never leave your keys, valuables or money with us!
