Full Marathon

A running tour of everything San Francisco. This USATF certified course takes a loop through the City, starting from the Ferry Building, and hitting classic SF spots like Fisherman’s Wharf, The Golden Gate Bridge and Park, Haight Street, The Mission and AT&T Park. Gorgeous, historic, and a Boston Marathon qualifier.

1st Half Marathon

Take a scenic run through the first half of The San Francisco Marathon. Start at The Ferry building and move up along The Embarcadero and Presidio, to the Golden Gate Bridge and ending in Golden Gate Park. The course is USATF certified.

2nd Half Marathon

The second half of The San Francisco Marathon passes through Haight/Ashbury, the Mission District, into Mission Bay, by AT&T Park, finishing just before the Ferry Building alongside the Main Marathon Finish Line. The course is USATF certified.



The 5K race is flat, fast and runs a loop on the Embarcadero along the beautiful San Francisco Bay. The start is just south of the Historic Ferry Building. The course heads south from the start with views of the Bay, Treasure Island and the Bay Bridge. At the base of the Bay Bridge the course loops around and heads north with sights to see like the top of the Transamerica Building and Coit Tower nestled on top of the San Francisco hills. The course continues north just until you hit the edge of Fisherman’s Wharf where runners will turn back around and head for the finish line located just north of the Ferry Building.
