The new race compliments the San Rafael Mile.

San Francisco Bay Area runners will have a new race option this summer. It’s called the Marin 415 Mile — named after that region’s area code of 415.

The event is an expansion of the popular San Rafael Mile.

“We’re very excited to bring the 415 Mile to Marin County,” said Jason Jacobsen, the race director and founder of Marin Runs. “We believe this new look event will maintain all the family aspects of our past runs, but also bring a truly fun run element to downtown San Rafael that even more runners can enjoy.”

The race also has a charity element to it, with Girls on the Run Bay Area serving as the official partner.

At least 75 percent of the girls in the program receive financial assistance to participate.

“The 415 Mile will make it possible for more girls to enroll in our valuable program, so that together we can build stronger, healthier, more confident girls,” race organizers said.
