The Giant Race at AT&T Park
The Giant Race Run/Walk Series represents the perfect combination of running and baseball. With annual events held in Scottsdale, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco, the series of races offers Giants fans fun and competitive opportunities at each level of the Giants' system. After stops in Scottsdale during Spring Training and at Minor League facilities in Sacramento and San Jose, the Series ends on the field at AT&T Park with a 20,000-participant race on the flattest and fastest course in San Francisco.
Now in its eighth year, The San Francisco Giant Race has quickly become a running tradition alongside the city's other signature races: the Bay to Breakers Race, the San Francisco Marathon, and the Bridge to Bridge 12K. In fact, runners who register for and complete any official distance at all four events in 2017 are eligible to win a San Francisco Originals prize.
Participants and non-runners alike can enjoy this annual event by attending the Giant Race Expo, where live music, entertainment and food will be alongside vendor booths inside AT&T Park.
