Ready to get back to running!

The past year has been a marathon, and now there is a finish line in sight.  We are ready to get back to normal and return to running…together.  With vaccinations progressing, and domestic travel options growing, it’s a great time to consider running the only race that combines the challenge of a marathon with the sights, tastes, and experiences you can only find in The City by the Bay.  The San Francisco Marathon welcomes you to conquer the course, and then explore the city, see the sights, taste the cuisine, and immerse yourself in culture as diverse as the world itself.
