Participants in last year's fun run.

SAN FRANCISCO — Early bird registration for the second annual S.F. Aloha 5K Fun Run has been extended to Friday, Sept. 7.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, at scenic Crissy Field in the Presidio of San Francisco, with the Golden Gate Bridge as the backdrop, runners/walkers of all abilities will enjoy Hawaiian entertainment and treats. The run starts promptly at 8:30 a.m.

The course will begin at the north side of Crissy Field, running toward the Golden Gate Bridge, then looping onto Mason Street, turning at the Crissy Field Center for the last mile back down the Golden Gate Promenade, and ending on the south side of Crissy Field.

All runners/walkers will receive a commemorative T-shirt and goodies from the sponsors. Post-5K celebrations will include beverages and Hawaiian-style snacks, Hawaiian music and Keiki’s Corner, providing activities for those young in age and young at heart.

Prizes will be awarded to the top adult male and female finisher, top youth male and female finisher (under age 14), youth with most aloha spirit, and family with most aloha spirit. Aloha spirit is open for creative interpretation, so have fun with it!
