SF/Berkeley Challenge

Race both sides of the Bay

Any SFM race + any BHM race
Runners who participate in any distance event at The San Francisco Marathon and any distance event at The Berkeley Half Marathon will receive a special San Francisco/Berkeley Challenge medal commemorating their achievement.

NEW! Bay to Bay 10K Challenge

SFM 10K + BHM 10K
Participate in our San Francisco Marathon 10K on September 19th, 2021, then run the Berkeley Half Marathon 10K on February 27th.  That’s all you have to do to qualify!  As a bonus, you will receive a  free in-training shirt, ready in time for you to start training for Berkeley (Early December 2021). Also, when you cross the finish line in Berkeley you will earn a coveted challenge pin!  Start this new challenge and earn a new pin every year!

I’m completing this Challenge by running…

  • Runners must register for both the SF Marathon & Berkeley Half Marathon events with the same first and last name and date of birth to be automatically qualified.
  • Once you are a challenge qualifier at your second qualifying event, the challenge starts over.

How to pick up your SF/Berkeley Challenge Medal

  • Your SF/Berkeley Challenge Medal will be picked up on race weekend of your second event.
  • Check your Bib for the SF/Berkeley Challenge stamp. This is the ticket to pick up your medal at the finish line. If your bib is not stamped, please visit the Solutions Table beforehand at the Expo.
  • Medals will be available for pick-up at the Challenges Tents at both the 1st Half Marathon and 2nd Half Marathon Finish Lines for SFM, and the main finish line for BHM.
  • Medals must be picked up at the Finish Line and will not be mailed for any reason.

Have you already run with us, and are wondering if you quality for a Challenge?
