The 9th annual Jim Tracy 5k to Defeat ALS is a one-day community event for runners and walkers of all levels. Join us for a timed 5k run/walk or a shorter walk in the beautiful Golden Gate Park. You won’t want to miss the community coming together to defeat ALS in Jim Tracy’s memory, for all of those we have lost, and to all of those we are running in honor of now.

About the event: Jim Tracy, the inspirational track coach at San Francisco University High School, lost his courageous battle with ALS in early 2014. Jim touched countless lives during his remarkable coaching career, which spanned two decades and 40 seasons at UHS. The legacy that Jim leaves to the world and to the ALS community is to “never give up”, no matter what the challenge. Soon after he lost his battle, the UHS cross country students put together the first ever Jim Tracy 5K to Defeat ALS. Since its inception, the event has raised over $150,000 and we will continue to bring together this community until we can celebrate the defeat of ALS.
