Lace up your shoes, hop on your bike, or just come and learn about ways to be healthy at the Sharks second ever “Fitness Faceoff: Run/Ride/Health” charity event presented by Alaska Airlines, which will be held on Sunday, June 29, 2014.

Participants can either choose to run/walk our 5k/10k course through downtown San Jose or set out on a 25/50* mile bike ride around the city. *Exact bike course distance TBD

Starting and finishing at SAP Center, 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.

If you are interested in participating in the 40-50 mile ride, please note that parts of it are very challenging and include difficult climbs. As with any distance athletic event (marathon, half marathon, century ride, etc…), we recommend you familiarize yourself with the course and train properly in the weeks leading up to it. Course map and official distances will be available in the coming weeks.

Due to popular demand, the first 2,000 participants will be guaranteed to get a custom tech t-shirt (100% polyester, moisture-wicking) and one-of-a-kind finishers medal. Shirts will be distributed at packet pickup, while medals will be distributed at the event.
