Lace up your shoes, hop on your bike, or just come and learn about ways to be healthy at the Sharks Foundation’s inaugural “Fitness Faceoff: Run/Ride/Health” charity event presented by Silver Creek Sportsplex, which will be held on Sunday, Jun. 30, 2013. Participants can either choose to run/walk our 5k/10k course through downtown San Jose or set out on a 25/55 mile bike ride around the city.
Starting and finishing at HP Pavilion, the home of the San Jose Sharks, runners and riders will get to challenge themselves on our fun courses, all while raising money for the Sharks Foundation, the official charity arm of the team. The event also features a free “Health Fest,” which will showcase a variety of exhibits and vendors focused on living a healthy lifestyle.
