Running the 408K

First of all you have be excited to run a race that offers a uncommon distance. Um, hello a new 8K PR, heck yeah!!! 408K let’s do this!

Represent Running donates the proceeds from the race to benefit the Pat Tillman Foundation . I, for one, definitely love running a race for a great cause. As an added bonus you get an awesome finishers shirtThis year’s awesome shirt design. Can’t wait until next years.

The course itself is easy to run two small underpasses, but mostly flat. You run 4.97 miles from the SAP center to Santana row. During the course you get to enjoy a variety of music, a memorial mile in honor of Pat Tillman, which is where you can high five the Veterans and let’s face who doesn’t want to high five a Veteran?? Next up is the mariachi mile. Heck yeah, you get enjoy different Mariachi bands playing to get you all pumped up after 4 miles of running.

Then the finishline, lined with a crowd of people cheering you on as you continue to push till the end. Once you cross the finishline and receive your awesome medal๐Ÿ… don’t miss out on all the photo ops

As you enjoy your walk through the end of the race area, you not only receive that all important banana and water, but you also can enjoy different specials offered from the various stores and restaurants in the area, including 4.08 mimosas, YUMMY!!

Of course best part of this race is definitely the amazing people you get to run it with.

We definitely had all the fun!!! Don’t wait for next year’s run to join us for a great time. Come out and run with us during our next run the Silicon Valley Half.

This inaugural race is sure to be a great time.
