Across the Bay 12K & 5K

July 2–11

Registration is now open for the 38th Across the Bay 12K & 5K! Choose to run 12K, 5K, or whatever your heart (and legs) desire while supporting mental health programs serving children and youth in the Bay Area.

While we won’t be together in person, in the lead up to the 38th running of the Across the Bay 12K & 5K we’re going to keep the roots of this event alive through a Celebration of Running this San Francisco tradition.

The First ‘Across the Bay’ Race: A Celebration of Running


As the 38th running of the Across the Bay 12K goes virtual for the second time in its history, Run Local got together with the race’s founder, Dave Rhody, for a behind the scenes look at how it all came together. Listen to our Run Local Pod and enjoy his written words and photos.

The Across the Bay 12K is a Pacific Association USATF Grand Prix Event.
