Across the Bay is an ode to simpler times when people came out to run on a whim, give their best and high five the finisher next to them — dudes and gals that have been around running and racing Across the Bay since it started in the 80’s.
The 12k features the same USATF certified course as years past -- a point to point journey starting in Sausalito, running across the Golden Gate Bridge, and finishing in Aquatic Park. The 5k starts and finishes in San Francisco. The shuttle ride to the starting area from San Francisco or Sausalito is free!

I ran this race about 20 years ago. Not sure why there was such a long gap but I ran it this year (2019). It is a good race. There is one monster hill going up to the bridge (third of a mile climbing 358 feet) and another little one at 7 miles. But then there are miles you can really fly on. I finished second 70 plus. It is point to point and you need to catch a bus at the finish to the start. Not a big deal and there is no additional costs. The lines for the bathrooms are long (take the early buses) but overall I would recommend this race highly.
