Join us for Viking Run Experience in Golden Gate Park


Viking Run is back for another year! Get ready for the activities, costumes, great raffle prizes, food court treats & picnic as well as a friendly run/walk competition - an event all ages and fitness levels. Whether you're a seasoned runner, a happy wanderer, a yoga lover, or just looking for a fun day out with family and friends, we've got you. 


Our run/walk features 
For adults:                        5K or 2K walk/run 
For Youth 13-18 years:    5K or 2K walk/run

In addition to running as an individual, collect a group of family or friends to create a team (3-6 persons per team, all running the same length). Your individual times will be combined and the fastest team will win. 
After the run
After the run, join a relaxing yoga for your whole body. For all levels and free.
Then it's time to relax and indulge in a delightful picnic experience. Meet our partners, take part in fun games and activities, listen to live music, check out the food court and then find your space in our picnic area to enjoy the natural beauty of Golden Gate Park. After experiencing all that event has to offer, join us for the award ceremony for the fastest runners, best costumes and the main raffle prizes.
