Ten Reasons to Run the Coyote Point 5k


There’s no better way to celebrate the New Year than by making a commitment to fitness, fun, and family. You can do all three by signing up for the Coyote Point 5k on January 25, 2020. Held annually in San Mateo’s Coyote Point Park, the Coyote Point 5k is a family-friendly event that runners and walkers of all ages and abilities will enjoy. Here are ten great reasons to sign up:

  • Get fit for 2020. The Coyote Point 5k is a great way to start the new decade right and get a head start on your New Year’s fitness resolutions.
  • Scenic run. We’ve marked out a great route that takes you along lush trees, scenic marinas, and the San Francisco Bay. A brief uphill climb provides a mild challenge, and runners are rewarded by sweeping views at the summit and a gentle downhill path all the way to the finish line.
  • Race perks. Your registration fee includes a race t-shirt and professional timing. Plus, we’ve got prizes and bragging rights for the speediest finishers.
  • Pancake breakfast. You’ll be picking up your pace knowing that hot, fresh pancakes are waiting for you at the finish line!
  • Convenient online registration. Just sign up on the Carb DM website and you’re good to go! No need to print out receipts or pick up race bibs, just put on your running shoes and be ready to run.
  • Group discounts. Save when you register with your friends! The first registration fee is $45; additional registrants under the same name will get a $5 registration fee discount.
  • Get expert help and advice. Everyone who signs up for the Coyote Point 5k is eligible to sign up for a special Couch to 5K training program!  Hosted by T1D runner Sean McPherson from Type One Run, in partnership with Steady Health – get a comprehensive 10 week training program, complete with tips to manage blood sugar along the way, that will get anyone, of any age, off the couch and on your feet! (*Please note, this program began training 11/16/2019. New registrations are still welcome, but will pick up the program already in progress.)
  • Free Three-Month membership to Steady Health. Sign up for the Couch to 5K training program and you’ll also get free one-on-one diabetes coaching from the team at Steady Health! Valued at $177, this three-month membership consists of an initial consultation (billable to insurance), one week of interactive tracking and analysis of your data, followed by ongoing member engagement through the Steady App platform. This option is available to begin anytime.
  • Proceeds help people with T1D. The Coyote Point 5k benefits Carb DM, and proceeds from the race will help us build a supportive community for children, teens, adults and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D).
  • Get together with the T1D community. Get together with your friends and show your support for your loved ones with T1D.
