Run the 1st Half Marathon and 2nd Half Marathon in 2 consecutive years, and you will qualify for the special Half it All Challenge Medal at the Finish Line! Now you can run the Golden Gate Bridge and cruise through the Golden Gate Park and Haight, covering all 26.2 Miles! Once you complete the Half it All Challenge, you are eligible to join the 52 Club!
