VMworld Run the Golden Gate Bridge 2009

We opened up registrations for the VMworld Run The Golden Gate Bridge 2009 event two days ago and already 135 runners have signed up! This is an amazing result for an initiative that started out with a couple of tweets between several well known VMware Community members. However I personally think we should be able to hit at least 200. So everyone who hasn't signed up yet, do so now as the registration closes this Sunday!

Here are the details:


Monday, August 31, 2009 @ 6:30 PM local time


Golden Gate Bridge (Shuttles will be provided from Moscone Center to the bridge and back)


$ 10,- (includes Nike dri-fit/cotton shirt)

Registration Closing Date

Sunday, August 23, 2009 @ 11:59 PM

Brief Description

Come join us for the first VMworld Fun Run. This event is only open to registered attendees of VMworld 2009 conference, sponsoring companies, partner companies and others associated with VMworld 2009. Event badges will be required to participate.


The course will take the runner over the Golden Gate Bridge and back. We are planning on a 5K course and a 10K course. The exact distance(s) may change due to logistics.


Shuttle bus transportation will depart from Moscone Center (VMworld HQ) and drop you off near the run launch pad. The buses will also return you to Moscone when you have finished. Bus schedules will be sent to you next week.


All proceeds and sponsorship donations will be donated to Save The Bay. Save the Bay is the largest regional organization working to protect, restore and celebrate San Francisco Bay. (www.savesfbay.org)

    I guess I will just show up and try to run this thing with everyone. It’s very sad that there won’t be any race day registration. Van we still order a shirt ?
