Runners Will Warm Up The Road to Super Bowl 50

The race will start and finish in the same stadium where the big game will take place.

The 50th edition of the world’s largest annual sporting event will take place on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., and runners will kick off the excitement a few weeks beforehand with a road race on Jan. 10. The Run the Road to Super Bowl 50 will feature a 10K, an untimed 5K and a kids run fun, starting and finishing at the same location where Super Bowl 50 will take place.

“It will be unique experience,” says race director Jamie Monroe, whose company, Easy Day Sports, is putting on the event. “Finishing at the stadium will allow runners to really embrace the excitement of the big game and take part in what’s going to be a great community event.”

Former San Francisco 49ers’ running back and three-time Super Bowl champion Roger Craig is serving as an ambassador for the event, which serves as the latest addition to the area’s “Countdown to Kickoff” lineup leading up to Super Bowl 50.

“It is an honor to be a part of the Run the Road to Super Bowl 50” says Craig, who will run in the event. “I look forward to taking the field once again with fans and friends in both the football and running communities as we celebrate Super Bowl 50 in the San Francisco Bay Area.”

The 10K race starts at 7:50 a.m., the untimed 5K at 8:50 a.m. and Kids Fun Run—a half-mile—at 10 a.m. Following the event, a post-race Wildcard Weekend “tailgate party” will be held at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Pub near the stadium.
