Lace up your shoes, hop on your bike, or join us to spend a day learning ways to implement a healthy and active lifestyle at the Sharks Foundation’s annual Fitness Faceoff.

The event offers a 5K and 10K run, a bike ride, and a Kids Fun Run to accommodate all ages and skill levels. All courses start and finish at the home of your San Jose Sharks, SAP Center.

A free Health Festival showcases a variety of health and fitness related vendors and plenty of fun activities for the whole family including a rock wall, inflatables, face painters, and more!

The overall top three male and female finishers in both the 5K and 10K will be acknowledged on stage in the Health Festival during an awards presentation, and everyone that participates will receive a custom Sharks race shirt and official finisher’s medal!

Regardless of your experience or athletic ability, it is sure to be a great day to get active, highlight the importance of health and wellness, and raise funds for the Sharks Foundation. Net proceeds from Fitness Faceoff benefit the Sharks Foundation and its mission to aid underserved youth and families in the community.
