At the finish line, participants will enter the Lights On Festival – a high energy party featuring food and beverages from some of San Francisco’s best restaurants, while enjoying top-tier entertainment. As the sun sets, UCSF will stage a spectacular, state-of-the-art light show surrounding the new Medical Center hospitals!
