    Last night started cold, I ran, got lost, then by the end of the night I don't know how I ended up dancing on a table in some bar/restaurant. You guys think that was the the end? NO. I was dancing next to this courageous girl who i know her name but i won't tell. I thought she fell from heaven. Is this great or WHAT? This thing dose not happen anywhere but at SF FUN RUN. I LOVE it ...

    Hey everyone! So pumped to join but this would be my first run in a LONG time... any slow-goers with the odd walking break? Hoping since there is beer involved it is not too elite : )

    Excited to do one of these! Can we store stuff (jacket, wallet, etc.) at the bar? Or does anyone know where I can keep stuff during the run?

      Don't bring a lot, not guaranteed bar will hold stuff for you.

      Martin is correct, all that can be assumed is runners will be at a bar and some route will be planned.

      Someone might drive and let you store stuff in their car or a kind bartender might let you store stuff behind the bar, but neither are guaranteed.

      Worst case is to run with your stuff
