ABOUT THE GIANT RACE
The Giant Race presented by Alaska Airlines represents the perfect combination of running and baseball. Launched in 2010 and with previous annual events held in Scottsdale, Sacramento, San Jose and San Francisco, the Giant Race unites an array of Giants-inspired themes at every level of professional baseball. Historically, after stops in Scottsdale during Spring Training and at Minor League facilities in Sacramento and San Jose, the Series ends on the field at Oracle Park with a 20,000-participant race on the flattest and fastest course in San Francisco. The San Francisco Giants and Giants Enterprises work in concert to provide baseball fans and health & wellness enthusiasts an unforgettable journey of run, walk, fitness and training experiences.
