About This Activity

The HERS KEEP ABREAST 5K Walk, 5K/10K Run and Community Expo brings hundreds of breast cancer patients and survivors from all over the Bay Area together to lace up their sneakers and rally family, friends and neighbors to raise funds to support those who have battled breast cancer.

Course ~ All courses are on flat and fast, paved road. Please note that the course is not USATF certified. The distance has been measured and is approximate. No bikes or skateboards on course.
T-Shirts ~ Participants receive a free t-shirt as part of their registration. If you register on the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a t-shirt. You can help us plan more accurately by registering early, so we know your size! Note, children under age 11 may participate at no cost (if accompanied by a participating adult), they will only receive a t-shirt after the event if available.

Awards ~ Presented to the top runners in each event (5K and 10K Run). All participants receive a finisher ribbon.
