+1, as long as it's not $110 like the vegas 2011 run.  I have shirts from 2009 & 2010, skipped 2011, and want a 2012 shirt now.

I really enjoyed the 2010 run. I really hope they put one together this year.

Also +1 if not prohibitively expensive.

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???

I've hit all of them since 2009 (yes, even the Vegas one) and I heard from a reliable source that a 2012 Fun Run is in the works.The SF runs have, BY FAR, been the best ones.

 

I'll post here whenever I get more information.

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???
I also skipped the Vegas run cause of the cost (it was more than the boston marathon registration!), but I'd really like to run again in SanFran!

Re: VMWorld Fun Run???
+1 here too if it goes.  I'd love to see another one across the bridge. I also skipped the Vegas one due to the prohibitive cost. Surely there must be some companies that want to sponsor this thing. I'd much rather see them sponsor this than more lame booze and food parties! ;)

Re: VMworld Fun Run???

I'm in again. I was there 2009, 2010 but miss last year in Vegas.

 

How about something different this year, like dropped off in Sausalito and run back? Or a run around the Presidio or the Golden Gate Park? What are the best local runs?

Re: VMworld Fun Run???

I'd be interested in this too. I'm at least planning to participate in my hotel's running program to keep me moving and burn some of those empty calories I'm sure to accumulate that week.

Re: VMworld Fun Run???

I don't know how far people like to run, but I've done a few of the following:

 

Start at Moscone and head up Mission to the Embarcadero then along the bay -- this is a nice route. If you follow that up to Broadway and back down Kearny, which turns into 3rd and runs by Moscone Center, you'll have a nice short loop -- 3 miles or so.

 

If you take Embarcadero all the way to Fisherman's Wharf, that's about 3 miles -- you can turn around and come back along the bay to maximize "bay-time" 

 

To the Cannery (past the wharf, near the cable car turnaround) and back via Powell St. is roughly 5.25 miles.

 

These are just ideas...

Re: VMworld Fun Run???
We should put together our own run, make some shirts that say "Run Here, Run Now" and get some sponsors

Re: VMworld Fun Run???

That's what the Fun Run shirts should say anyway, IMO!
