This week, NightLife works up a sweat in preparation for The San Francisco Marathon. CHEER SF will pump up the crowd with two performances in the East garden, followed by a costume contest for the best in workout attire (see below for categories). The SF Marathon crew and race partners will host interactive components including a chair massage station by Everest College, a yoga station from Lululemon, strategies from Bootcamp SF, UCSF RunSafe gait analysis and injury prevention advice, and contestants Ada Wong and Jesse Atkins from The Biggest Loser Season 10 leading a circuit workout. Plus, a series of creative short clips made just for planetarium domes at 6:30. Music by DJ Kap10.
Win a chance to run the 5k with “The Subway Guy,” Jared Fogle presented by The San Francisco Marathon! The “Where’s Jared” hunt will take place from 6pm to 9pm at NightLife. Dressed for the occasion, Jared will be in his finest workout attire.
