The Giant Race at AT&T Park
The Giant Race Run/Walk Series Presented by Alaska Airlines represents the perfect combination of running and baseball. With annual events held in Scottsdale, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco, the Series offers Giants fans fun and competitive opportunities at every level of professional baseball. The Series begins in Scottsdale during Spring Training, continues at Minor League facilities in Sacramento and San Jose, and 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 ninth year, The San Francisco Giant Race has quickly become a city tradition alongside the city's other signature races, such as the Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers 12K, the San Francisco Marathon, and the Oral-B Glide Floss Bridge to Bridge Run. In fact, runners who register for and complete any official distance at all four events in 2018 are eligible to win a San Francisco Originals prize.
Participants and non-runners alike can enjoy this annual event by attending the Giant Race Health & Fitness Expo, where live music, entertainment and food will be alongside vendor booths inside AT&T Park.
