San Francisco, CA
Distance: 10K · 5K · Double 8K
As many of us are looking for things to do at home during this Cornavirus crisis may we suggest watching A Long Run the movie. We have been told it is inspiring.
The full length movie covers a lot of ground highlighting several runners with interesting stories. It also features our Golden Gate Double 8k race Director Bob Anderson and his quest to run 50 races in 2012 covering at least 350 miles at a sub 7 minute pace. It also gives us insights of how this 17-year-old kid from Kansas started Runner's World magazine and grew it to over 2.5 million readers.
You can watch the full length movie for FREE compliments of My Best Runs. Here is the link. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AZBicZR4y84
The world will get a handle on the COVID-19 crisis. Hopefully sooner than later. "I know we all miss racing and freely running. Things will get back to normal," says Bob Anderson.
We hope you canjoin us August 2 in San Francisco for our Golden Gate 10k, 5k or Double 8k. Always a fun event. Bob Anderson and team look forward in seeing and running with you.
"I hope you enjoy our movie," says Bob Anderson, "it was so exciting to not only run 50 races but to work with our film crew (headed by my son Michael and my wife Catherine) every weekend for a year. We met so many amazing runners and race directors. For sure this was a highlight of my life."
