Pamakids are all over the races, from track to cross-country to ultras, but what about a series that tests your speed, hill-climbing, donuteating, and Pamakid-camaraderie skills all in one?
To win the awesome Pama-prize and make your mark in this inaugural Series, you must be a Pamakid and run or volunteer at 3 of the 6 events. The Four Peak Challenge will count as two events if you make it to all four peaks. Series standings will be posted on our new website (www.pamakids.org) so you can track your progress. Whoa, buddy. Easy there!
To sign up for the series, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know if you’re interested in volunteering at any race.
The series is free for Pamakids (except usual fee for track workouts). For non-Pamakids, race day registration is $5; kids under 18 run for free. All runs are fun runs.
STAGE 1 (1 point)
Four Peak BEAST Challenge Sunday, April 24, 2016, 9:00 AM
Scale Twin Peaks, Mt. Davidson, and Mt. Sutro – the more peaks you climb, the more points you earn. The twist is there is no set course. A great conditioning workout with amazing views.
STAGE 2 (2 points)

Run 4.5 miles around Lake Merced in this age- and gender-handicapped race, followed by dinner. Who will be the first to cross the finish line? It might not be one of the usual suspects!

One Mile Time Trial Tuesday, July 26, 2016, 6:30 PM
A classic from Coach Andy – see how you stack up against yourself of years past, or set a new baseline.
