Race Discount!

Special Offer for the 98th Annual ING Bay to Breakers 12k : May 17th, 2009

Please don't think this is a commercial but a woman promoting the ING Bay to Breakers 12k in contacted me with an opportunity for interested runners to get a discount on race registration. Here's some information:

Now in its 98th year, Bay to Breakers is one of the world's largest and oldest footraces, held annually in San Francisco. ESPN recently this race named one of the “101 things all sports fans must experience before they die.” This year's race will be held on May 17, 2009. Funds raised through registration fees make the event possible each year and support numerous Bay Area beneficiaries, like Breathe California.

ING Bay to Breakers 12k has a special offer for readers of The Happy Runner! You can get an additional 5% off the early registration price for this year’s race. Check it out!

  • Visit for details about the race
  • Register online by midnight on April 30th, 2009 to receive the early registration price with an additional 5% discount
  • Enter this coupon code 5HAPPYRUN09 (case sensitive) and click ‘redeem’ before completing your registration
  • This offer is limited to the first 100 registrants, so make sure to register as soon as possible!

Please direct any questions to info (at) ingbaytobreakers (dot) com

The Fine Print:

  • This is an online offer only
  • Discount is valid only for the registration fee. It is not applied to optional purchases such as the MUNI pass or packet mailing fee
I checked out the web site and, man, if I lived in Cali, I'd be all over this! The race looks really cool -- there's even a costume contest! -- but I'm here in upstate New York so I'm out of luck. So, I'll leave it to the travelers and California peeps. If you run this, you have to let me know how it is!!!

Have fun!

Melanie said...

Gee, more people promoting races should think of doing this. Very cool thing to be able to offer on your blog!

Hehe! I've done it. It is crazy but so fun. I would love to do it again some year.

It is the biggest spectacle I've ever witnessed at a race.

This is the best race ever. It's so much fun but it's also a lot of "OMGs, don't look over there, and what a great costume". I'm not racing in it this year b/c I'll be in TN doing a tri.

B2B is a CRAZY race! It is somewhat hard to run in the race since there are sooooo many people....and the costumes include a lot of people wearing NOTHING. Yes, you read that right.

aron said...

she was supposed to send me a coupon code too :-/ hmmm.

i think i am going to run it this year, i have heard about all the madness so why not experience it :)

I totally wish I lived on Cali! Maybe next year I can do this cause May 17th is when I will still be at school : (
