Bad News Bears: The Giant Race is Sold Out

Posted on: May 25, 2011

I know you were just waiting one more day to sign up for that half marathon on August 27th.  Well, you put it off one day too late.  The Giant Race for all race lengths is sold out.  I know, you’re crying into your new running shoes right now.

There is, however, still hope.  If you commit to raise at least $500 for Project Open Hand, you can register.  According to the race website:

THIS JUST IN: The Giant Race Benefiting Project Open Hand is sold out. BUT, Project Open Hand has released several dozen spots in EACH race (yes, half, 10k, and 5k included) that include a baseball game ticket to Friday night’s Runners Night game. To be eligible for these spots (and get one for FREE), we ask that you commit to fundraise $500 for Project Open Hand’s worthy programs.

If you’re thinking that the fundraising requirement is a little too much for your plate, don’t fret: the City has several other races coming up.  Check out a few of the races here or go to and search races in the Bay Area to find one that still has spots.

For those of you who did manage to sign up for The Giant Race – I’ll see you at the finish line.
