Video: San Francisco companies enjoy run
in their backyard on Embarcadero
With 6,732 participants from 257 companies - a 25 percent increase from 2009 - the 26th running of the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge in San Francisco returned to its roots on the Embarcadero. Runners enjoyed a waterfront course that swept past AT&T Park, the downtown and the headquarters of many of the city's top companies. The big turnout also meant the big winner on this night - August 4 - was the YMCA of San Francisco’s Kids to Camp Fund, which sends at-risk children to Camp Jones Gulch, a spectacular 1,000 acre natural treasure in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It was a terrific way to close the 34th season of the world's largest corporate running series, as the video below shows.
