Perry'sA marathon is an exciting event for a runner; it’s the end goal that you have been striving to achieve, the goal you have been dedicated to for months now. An event like this isn’t just about getting fit, it not just about the run itself, it’s about the journey and the experience of the entire weekend. The SF Marathon now offers runners an option to get the very most out of race day with the ultimate VIP treatment. VIP tickets includes amenities on race day that treat the runner to incredible luxuries before and after the race. VIP runners receive an exclusive sweats drop off and storage, a pre-race breakfast right off the start line starting at 4:45, a post- race brunch until 1:00pm, and private bathrooms.  You also get to indulge in a much needed post-race message and on top of everything you get to take home a special Swag Bag! The Party will be hosted at Perry’s Restaurant on the Embarcadero- just a few steps away from the main start and finish lines.

This year our special Swag Bag is sponsored by Crumpler and is filled with all sorts of great goodies! Crumpler is generously donating ipod and camera cases. Crumpler is one of this years sponsors and specializes in backpacks, camera, messenger, and laptop bags. If you want to learn more about their products you can visit their website.  The 2011 Swag Bag will also include 2 CD’s from Porto Franco Records. Porto Franco Records is a family-run record label founded in 2009 to support the Bay Area’s lively and eclectic music scene. “After moving to San Francisco three years ago, we became fans of a multitude of incredible local musicians, many of whom played in multiple bands of unrelated genres. This collective artistry inspired us to create a label dedicated to the artists and their home, instead of any one style of music. We put together this sampler to share the extraordinary breadth of underground musical talent in San Francisco.”

This digital package includes full albums by Ethiopian-American singer/composer Meklit Hadero, folk multi-instrumentalist Mark Growden, the Bay Area’s Balkan powerhouse Brass Menazeri and Gypsy jazz sextet Gaucho. The goody bag adds to the multitude of niceties that comes along with The San Francisco Marathon [intlink id="1386" type="page"]VIP ticket[/intlink].
