Congratulations on entering this great event scheduled for Saturday, December 12, 2015 on Angel Island. We are happy you can join us for our 28th annual holiday run.
A special chartered ferry will be leaving the dock at 9:00AM. A $15-park admission/ferry fee was included in your entry. If you have spectators coming with you, they can buy ferry tickets from us on Saturday morning (fee details below).
Wear your warm-ups on the ferry! You can leave unneeded items in the picnic area at Ayala Cove while you are out running. Smart runners will dress in layers â€“ gloves, vests and beanie caps are all good ideas, as the return ferry trip can be chilly!
