Race Details
This is the faster, late start half marathon, ideal for the half marathoner looking to PR. 2nd half marathoners get priority in next year’s 1st half lottery.

Race Route
Our 2nd Half Marathon begins adjacent to one of the most beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay. Start your race at Crissy Field with the Golden Gate Bridge so close you can almost touch it. Wind your way through the Presidio where ocean breezes and smells of Eucalyptus await you. As you continue on Lincoln Avenue, a downhill trek affords picturesque views of the Sea Cliff neighborhood with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop! The city streets take you into Golden Gate park and land you on Haight Street, one of the most famous streets in the world. Next up is the historic Mission district and the newly developed Mission Bay district. Run past the home of the Golden State Warriors and The SF Giants. Finish up just past the Bay Bridge and take a bow!
