The Superhero Fun Run for a Cure course is a tour of Coyote Point Park. For all runs, the start is at the Duck Pond. The course then runs north to the water and then west.
After a small run, the course will then turn left to follow the park's perimeter and go around the Magic Mountain jungle gym. Here is where the run changes for the 5k/10 and 1 mile run. For the 1 mile run, the course will turn left near the Duck Pond to follow the road back to the Finish Line.
For the 5k/10k, superheroes will run along the golf course and head toward the Bay Trail, which goes all the way to Foster City. After a small distance on the Bay Trail, the run will then turn left and run along the bay to get awesome views of the water and the East Bay, and eventually run into the Marina and to the preserve area. After a small tour in the Marina it will be time to run back to the Duck Pond by taking the uphill trails past the Coyote Point Museum and memorials. After a slight downhill and run back along the water, the 5k runners will return to the Duck Pond for a super finish. 10k runners will hydrate and take the loop one more time before their super hero finish.
The Superhero Fun Run for a Cure was and continues to be organized as a Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) fundraiser. LLS raises money to support blood cancer research. Since 1949, LLS has been dedicated to curing leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. www.lls.org
The 2017 4th Annual Superhero Fun Run for a Cure proceeds will be donated to LLS through the organization’s Man and Woman of the Year fundraising campaigns. Each year, in communities across the U.S. passionate candidates engage in an exciting competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) "Man & Woman of the Year" titles by raising funds for LLS blood cancer research. The candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.
The proceeds from previous Superhero Fun Run for a Cure events were donated to LLS through LLS’ Man and Woman of the Year and LLS' Team in Training program. Team In Training (TNT) is the flagship fundraising program for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the only endurance sports training program for charity that raises money for blood cancer research. TNT and LLS are changing the landscape of blood cancer, not someday but today, making TNT the perfect way to fundraise.
Please note that the Superhero Fun Run for a Cure is a fundraising event. All entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. As mentioned, all proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
