The San Francisco Marathon


Grow Organically and Sustainably


The San Francisco Marathon’s reputation attracts top endurance athletes from around the country and the globe, as well as many of Silicon Valley’s noted tech company and leaders. These individuals come together to share the same amazing aspects of the city that the residents love, and to embrace and celebrate the challenge of running the country’s toughest big city marathon. The SF Marathon is proud to host over 25,000 runners, and to reward their efforts with unparalleled breathtaking views and a unique course that they will never forget.

The race prides itself on being a bit different from the pack, like the city itself the race is more individual, the course more challenging, the terrain more beautiful – an event The Wall Street Journal referred to as “The Race Even Marathoners Fear.”


The mission of RUN365 is to educate participants by providing physical, mental and motivational tools to new and experienced runners that will lead to the completion of a half or full marathon and a lifetime of healthy running. Our training practices are based on RRCA coaching guidelines, fitness and nutrition research with a specific emphasis on the health and safety of each trainee. The run club supports the community by offering Train for Free, an optional fundraising program.
