2014 Sharks Fitness Faceoff Sharks Fitness Faceoff Presented by Alaska Airlines

Lace up your shoes, hop on your bike, or just come and learn about ways to be healthy at the Sharks second ever “Fitness Faceoff: Run/Ride/Health” charity event presented by Alaska Airlines, which will be held on Sunday, June 29, 2014.

Participants can either choose to run/walk our Kids Fun Run/5k/10k course through downtown San Jose or set out on a 20/50 mile bike ride around the city.

Starting and finishing at SAP Center, the home of the San Jose Sharks, runners and riders will get to challenge themselves on our fun courses, all while raising money for the Sharks Foundation, the official charity arm of the team. The event also features a free “Health Fest,” presented by Kaiser Permanente, which will showcase a variety of exhibits and vendors focused on living a healthy lifestyle.

Regardless of your experience or athletic ability, it’s sure to be a great day to get active, highlight the importance of being healthy and raise money for the Sharks Foundation.

Can't make it to the event? Sign up for a "virtual race" and receive all of the benefits of a participant (t-shirt and medal) without having to be there. It's easy; just pay the "virtual race" registration fee and pledge to run or bike the distance on your own. The items will be mailed to you post event.

*If you are interested in participating in the 50 mile ride, please note that parts of it are very challenging and include difficult climbs. As with any distance athletic event (marathon, half marathon, century ride, etc…), we recommend you familiarize yourself with the course and train properly in the weeks leading up to it. Tentative course map can be found below.

Each Participant Will Receive:

Due to popular demand, the first 2,500 participants will be guaranteed to get a custom tech t-shirt (100% polyester, moisture-wicking) and one-of-a-kind finishers medal. Shirts will be distributed at packet pickup, while medals will be handed out at the event. We will close registration at 2,500 participants to ensure that everyone who signs up receives a medal and shirt.

Please note that the ladies-style shirts are cut slightly slimmer in the waist and sleeves. As a general guideline, a ladies extra-large shirt is equivalent to a men’s medium shirt. If you’ve already registered and would like to update the size of your shirt, please email sharksfoundation@sharkssports.net. Unfortunately, we will be unable to exchange your shirt at packet pickup or event day.
