"California's Longest Party" is on and with a new name, The Golden Gate Relay.
The Golden Gate Relay goes from Calistoga in Napa Valley to Sonoma to Marin, through Sausalito, across the Golden Gate Bridge under a full moon, through San Francisco to Palo Alto and through Silicon Valley to the beach in Santa Cruz. Featuring the natural beauty of the Bay Area, the 199-mile course boasts the largest number of tourist destinations of any run.
The Golden Gate Relay is the largest event in the world promoting organ donation, through Organs 'R' Us, the transfer of the baton from runner to runner symbolizes the transfer of an organ from donor to recipient.
Teams are comprised of 12 members, each running three legs in rotation. The 36 legs through 36 cities are 3 to 8.9 miles and rated from easy to very hard allowing runners to select legs that match their strengths. Runners of all abilities are challenged, contribute and have a great time.
We do this event largely at night and shifts are about 8 hours or so.
This is a great time to test your night time ARES skills, equipment and stamina..
Thank you for signing up to work.
