Please join us for the 2023 Pinkathon Challenge for Breast Cancer!  Run virtually or run at the in-person event! If you decide to run virtually,  you can run, walk or cycle - any distance you want - anywhere you want - even if you're in another state, another country, or another planet!  You may complete your distance any time and across as many days as you want, any time before October 31, 2023.  Last year, we raised over $70,000 for our charity, BCRF!  Let's do it again!
The 9th Annual Pinkathon SF In-Person Event will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2023, at the San Francisco Ferry Building by Gott's Roadside's outdoor patio and has a capacity limit due to location constraints.  The Virtual Pinkathon Challenges have no capacity limits.  To change your race registration from In-Person to Virtual, just log in to the registration page, go to your Profile and find "Manage Registration".  Then look for the "Transfer Event" button in the left hand column.  More detailed instructions are here:  If you need help transferring from In-Person to Virtual, please email the Race Director.
The Pinkathon SF is a FREE "do-it-yourself" or "fat-ass" event, meaning that we have NO AID STATIONS and NO COURSE MARKINGS (except for the 5K & 10K turnarounds & Pink Ribbon Trail).  You must bring/carry your own water and snacks.  We have downloadable maps and turn-by-turn directions that you can find at
Although it's free to register for the Pinkathon, we expect EVERY participant to make a voluntary donation to our charity, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to the best of their ability.   Make your donation at You can also create your own individual or team/group fundraising page and raise donations from your family, friends and co-workers!
