About this year's Sprint San Francisco:

Seven sprint races in 48 hours. Can you meet the challenge?

This year’s Sprint San Francisco is once again the capstone to the North American Sprint Series. A Friday night Sprint Relay, a 3-Round knockout tournament on Saturday, and a Qual and Final on Sunday will have you whizzing around all weekend. The two races on Sunday are National Ranking Events.

Friday night’s relay will be at Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline in San Leandro, a small park sticking out into the southern reaches of San Francisco Bay. The event will be a two-person sprint relay, with each person running two legs. No need to have a partner in advance: we’ll form teams once everyone is there so as to make the competition more interesting.

We visit the other side of the South Bay on Saturday, at Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park. Everyone gets to run each of the three races, but only the top runners at each stage still are in contention for the tournament. Each round has groups starting in flights, so there will be some exciting head-to-head competition.

The weekend finishes with two National Ranking Events on the University of California, Berkeley campus, an excellent urban sprint venue. These races will be interval-started. The top men and women in the Qualifying Round run in the A-Final. Everyone else will run in the B-Final, which will start after the A-Final is done so that everyone can watch the A-Final.

We will once again have excellent results displays provided Western Race Services, and we’ll have fun prizes for each day at the Award Ceremony on Sunday.

Entries are limited and are starting to fill up, so don’t delay in signing up. We already have entrants from five foreign countries: Finland, Denmark, Russia, Canada and Seattle. Entry deadline is December 4.
