Help us in 2014 build more water wells! The race has raised almost $50,000 in its lifetime to help build 14 water wells in Uganda, helping thousands of people gain access to fresh water.
We welcome you to the 6th Annual Running For The Wells 10k/6k presented by Injinji Performance Toe Socks on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at Sports Basement (601 Old Mason St., San Francisco, CA) in the beautiful San Francisco Presidio in San Francisco, CA at 9:00 am. All fees and donations collected as part of this run go towards building water wells in Uganda with World Harvest Mission, a registered 501 (3)c. Prior to the run at 8:30 am, our event features Jeremy Affeldt of the San Francisco Giants and guest speaker William Kasiyre of World Harvest Mission to share about the water well projects in Uganda you're supporting through this run.
The entry fee for the run is $40 through through 6/30, $45 through 9/5 and $50 through race day if available. Youth under 18 can run for $35. Total runners is capped, so be sure to register early! The fee includes a pair of Injinji toesocks provided by Injinji for all runners, Clif products, a free digital finish photo (available online) and breakfast food with us.
Bring along your non-runner friends and family, who for a small fee of $10, can enjoy the food spread as well. All participants and volunteers will also be able to shop at Sports Basement with our special race discount with Sports Basement donating 10% of your purchases to support the Uganda Water Well projects.
There is a raffle for all participants and volunteers for all sorts of cool sponsor prizes including signed sports memorabilia, Giants tickets, Diakadi personal training, Brooks shoes, RoadID certificates and an Injinji prize pack. There will be the official synthetic short sleeve race logo shirts for sale as well. Again, ALL proceeds from these sales will benefit the well building projects.
So come and enjoy one of the crown jewels of San Francisco Bay Area parks all while helping to provide clean water to the people of Uganda! Click on the General Info and Registration link to the left for all the details and to register now! All runners, grubbers (food only) and volunteers need to register.
A special thanks to all of our sponsors and volunteers for their support and generosity. I look forward to being out there with you in San Francisco, CA on Saturday, September 13, 2014 starting at 8:30 am with the run beginning at 9 am. On-Site Check-In and Registration (if still available) opens at 7:45 am.
See you all there,
