The Across the Bay 12K & 415K took place on Sunday, July 10, 2016. This race is the 415 area code's flagship event in the Represent Running Series of area code-based events.
One of the greatest runs in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Across Bay 12K & 5K course begins in Sausalito, continues across the Golden Gate Bridge, and finishes in Aquatic Park. With stunning views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, this event attracts thousands of runners throughout the Bay Area. Proceeds will benefit thousands of youth and families Edgewood Center for Children and Families serves each year!
