About This Activity

Reach For A Star 5K (aka "RFAS 5K" or "Star 5K")

What is the star (i.e. goal) you want to reach for this race?  Whether it be to just finish the race, meet a certain time goal, beat a particular friend/rival, or achieve a non-running accomplishment (e.g. career goals, goal weight, making friends, etc.), challenge yourself to reach your star by race day.  Finisher medals will be presented to those who reach their star.

This year's race will take place on 3/13/2016.  With Saint Patrick's Day around the corner on race day, show some spirit and maybe you'll have a luck finding a pot of gold along the course.  More details for the "pot of gold" prize search to come.  Check back for updates at the race website.

The RFAS 5K starts and finishes at Sierra Point in Brisbane, CA (the city of stars), just south of San Francisco.  The mostly flat course loops around the Sierra Point area before going along the San Francisco Bay Trail (bike path), giving participants views of the bay and possibly even some pelicans.  The 5K course is USATF certified (certification# CA15001TK) for accuracy.

Sign up before 1/15/2016 for an early bird New Years special price.  Additional discount for entries without shirts are available during this period.  Regular adult entry prices are $35 ($25 for 18 and under).  Registration price for adult entry will increase to $40 on 2/29/2016.  Online registration closes 3/10/2016. Pre-registration by 3/7/2016 is required for shirts. Bib numbers with chips will be distributed to runners on race day.  All entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Race Day registration will take place at the parking lot just North of 400 Sierra Point Parkway, Brisbane California 94005. The race day fee for the 5K is $40 ($25 for age 18 and under) and does not include a shirt.

The Reach For A Star 5K is part of the Pacific Association-USA Track & Field (PAUSATF) Road Grand Prix.  The race is open to runners and walkers of all abilities; however, PAUSATF membership is required to be eligible for cash prize money payouts.

Check back later for details and prices for the untimed Community 3K Run.

Other Information

Proceeds from the 5K race will benefit the schools of the Brisbane Elementary School District with support from the BEST/PTO.

There should be plenty of parking space in the area surrounding 400 Sierra Point Parkway.  However, cars leaving while the race is still in progress must proceed with caution.  Follow instruction of any couurse monitors or parking officials.
