2016 Levi’s Presidio 10 Recap

The Guardsmen hosted their annual Levi’s Presidio 10 road race on April 17th 2016 and broke previous fundraising records for the event. The event featured several race options including a 10-mile course, a 10K course, and a 5-mile course. All routes included the Golden Gate Bridge so all runners could experience the majestic views of and from San Francisco’s iconic landmark. Levi’s returned as title sponsor and fielded a strong team that competed across all events. We’d like to thank Levi’s for their continued support not only in name but also with the significant participation from Levis employees.

This year the event broke records for runner registration including over 4400 runners, up 10% from 2015’s Levis Presidio 10K. The races were staggered throughout the early morning hours to allow for smooth starts and to coordinate finishers arriving at Crissy Field. After the race, runners had the chance to explore the Expo where partners and vendors were conducting product demonstrations and product giveaways. The event also included world class BBQ and beer provided by Lagunitas Brewery. Entertainment at the event included live music on Crissy Field so runners could keep the sweat up after the race by dancing to excellent tributes from renowned Bay Area band Wonder Bread 5.

This year we are also proud to say we had strong volunteer support, so thank you to everyone who came out in the weeks before the event to prepare as well as to those who got up early to set up on a chilly and wet Crissy Field. Whether you participate as a runner or a volunteer, we look forward to seeing you all next year for the 2017 Levi’s Presidio 10.
