Over 6,000 runners are expected to participate in the race’s 14th edition, according to organizers. This year’s event features 5K and 10K races, along with a virtual option. The race ends on Oracle Park’s field.

Five streetcar and bus lines will be rerouted, and a handful of streets around the ballpark will be closed, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.
