The Statuto is America's 4th oldest foot race west of the Mississippi. Named for the creation of the first Italian Constitution (Statuto Albertino), the event has been held since 1920 and is one of the two foundation athletic activities the 4 competing Italian Clubs participated in shortly after their founding (the other sport being soccer).  The 4 clubs later combined into what is now the SFIAC.

An 'out and back' route, the mostly flat 5-mile course starts at the San Francisco Italian Athletic Club (SFIAC) on Washington Square Park. The course runs north from the SFIAC Club main entrance at 1630 Stockton Street turning east onto North Point Street and then turning south onto Herb Caen Way (aka The Embarcadero) along the waterfront to Bryant Street and then returning along the same route. There is also a 2-mile fun walk along the same course with its 'turnaround' at Pier 23 instead of Bryant Street.  See the map below or download it here.

Registration includes a commemorative 97th annual event T-shirt to all entrants.

For the 5-mile race, trophies will be awarded to the first overall male and female runners and the first SFIAC dues paying club member. Medals are awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place men and women starting at age 10 and under, ages 11-19 and every 10 year age category up to 80+. The first 200 people regardless of age to complete the run or walk will receive a complimentary deli salami.

Prize drawings for all entrants in both the 5-mile run and 2-mile fun walk will be held in the club banquet hall after the awards ceremony; participants must be present to claim prize(s).

Register by May 26 at 11pm and pay the discounted fees of $30 for the 5-mile run and $25 for the 2-mile fun run. From May 27 until race day, registration will be $40 for the 5-mile run and $35 for the 2-mile fun walk. On the day of the race, participants can register at the Club starting at 7:30am.  For more information or to download a race/walk entry form, click here or on the image below.  Note that the fees paid are non-refundable.
