Presented by IBM Bay Area and Facebook, in partnership with San Francisco Bay Trail and AllTrails, Bay Day is a month-long celebration from October 1-31 that challenges everyone to get outdoors and experience our beautiful Bay. In October 2020, Save The Bay expanded what began as a one-day, in-person event into a safe, flexible, and inclusive way for everyone to explore the Bay in their own way.
This year there are 2 ways to get involved:
25-Mile Challenge: Explore the Bay and walk, bike, run, wheel, or paddle a combined total of 25 miles of local shoreline trails
5 Bay-Related Activities: Create your own adventure and complete 5 activities – of any type – that connects you to the Bay.
Yes! Every mile and activity allows you to experience and learn more about our region. Feel free to explore more of the SF Bay Trail and track all the miles you cover, or participate in any number of activities. The important part is having fun!
