2023 Referral Program information and prizes coming soon!

Spread the Word and Receive the Love

When you sign up for any of our San Francisco race distances (5k, 10k, half, full, or ultra), you’re eligible to earn special swag when you refer friends to register before July 1st, 2022.

This year, anyone who refers just ONE other person, gets our exclusive and much-loved finisher mug, with a brand new design for our 45th anniversary in 2022!

How it works:

  • Register for a San Francisco Marathon race – 5k, 10k, 1st or 2nd half, full, or ultra
  • In your registration confirmation email, you will find your Personal Referral Code
  • Share that code with your friends and family by posting on social media
  • They must enter Your Personal Referral Code in the “Referral Code” box on the Checkout page (Step 4) when they register
  • Pick up your referral gift items at the Expo during race weekend

Here’s What To Say When You Invite Your Friends:

Once you register, you’ll receive your own personal referral code to share with friends and family, and earn more fun gifts!

“I’m running the 2022 San Francisco Marathon and you should run with me!”

“You can register here and then on Step 4, the Checkout page, please enter my referral code in the box that says “Referral Code”: (insert Your Personal Referral Code from your confirmation email).



Where can I find my Personal Referral Code?
Your Personal Referral Code is in your San Francisco Marathon registration confirmation email. Search your email for an email with the subject line: “The San Francisco Marathon 2022 Registration Confirmation.” In that email, under your credit card confirmation, look for “Your Personal Referral Code.”

If you still can’t find it, email customersupport@thesfmarathon.com and we’ll help you.

When will I get my gifts that I’ve earned for referring friends?
This year, anyone who has referred one or more person will get a free finisher mug with their distance and finish time on it, therefore the item will be shipped to you post-race. Please allow 6-8 weeks for items to be shipped. Items will not be shipped to you before the race.
