10K on the Bay

Submitted By Hayward Area Recreation and Park District

Run or walk along the Bay Trail and enjoy the breath-taking views of the San Francisco Bay Estuary. Participate in a 10K or 5K run/walk. Proceeds from this event help maintain and enhance the educational programs, exhibits and facilities of the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center.

Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. Participants will receive their bib, to which a complementary raffle ticket will be attached, T-shirt and goodie bag. Use the ticket to enter a drawing for great prizes from REI, Patagonia, The North Face, Claudia's Body and Skin Care Center, Gold's Gym, Road ID and Aquarium of the Bay. Additional raffle tickets may also be purchased. Winners must be present to claim their prize. All proceeds go directly to programs of the Interpretive Center.
