Event description


In 2018, women made history by running and winning at record-breaking rates - including women of color, young women and LGBTQ. Let’s hit a new P.R. (personal record in runner’s speak) and prove women running for office isn’t an anomaly, it’s the norm! After all, we're San Francisco. We lead the nation. Come celebrate the next wave of women running for office at the Courage to Run San Francisco 5K!

If running/walking isn’t your thing or you are unable, join us as a volunteer or cheerleader. There is something for everyone. This is an untimed community "run together". All are welcome!


Big cheers to our early Civic Warrior Sponsors!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All ages are welcome! Like participating in the democratic process, ensuring the Courage to Run is accessible to all is a priority. There is an Emerging Leader (ages 22 and under) and Student (of all ages) reduced rate. No ID is necessary.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We highly recommend taking public transit or ride share, especially since the park is closed to traffic on Sundays. The Pioneer Log Cabin is off of Stow Lake. Click here to see Muni options closest to you.

What's the refund policy?

There are no refunds for this event. Thanks for supporting a fabulous cause!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring a printout or electronic copy (even better) of your registration to packet pick-up.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

If you are unable to attend (life happens), ping us about either transferring your registration or to learn about remote packet pick-up.

Where does the money go?

Courage to Run is full tilt about celebrating and elevating the individuals, organizations and communities committed to building the mindset, endurance and heartfelt vision needed to be healthy and effective in politics today. Net proceeds go back out to support this growing movement. Donations will be distributed to our more than 30 diverse champs based on and through registration, including Bay Area grown Emerge America, BWOPA, IGNITE National and Women Get It Done.

How do I train?

Get 5K and election day ready with our customized 5-week training plan. It includes evidence-based mental, physical and leadership skill drills that build the literal and figurative muscle to cross the finish line strong.
