Spectator Information

You don’t have to run to be a part of the The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon experience. We encourage friends and family of runners and the San Francisco community to participate on Race Day (July 28th, 2019). Your presence and encouragement makes a huge, meaningful impact on our runners. We hope the following information helps our spectators prepare for race day.

Follow the Race on Our Live Web Tracker

The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon Live Web Tracker allows spectators to stay connected to runners and our race online in real-time throughout race weekend. Access important race information, follow runners on the interactive course map, and track runner times and current pace on race day. The app will be available closer to race day.


Digital Cheer Boards

Share motivational messages with your favorite runners! Post on your social media profiles, using #BiofreezeCheer and #Bib (insert bib number of runner after “Bib”), and your message will appear on cheer boards located on-course. Check back closer to race week to find out more!

Course Entertainment and Cheer Stations

The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon showcases over a dozen different entertainment groups and cheer stations that reflect the city’s unique artistic community along the course. Our course entertainment aids in keeping runner spirits and vigor up during the race. If you or your group wishes to perform or create a cheer station, please visit our Volunteers page. Everyone is invited to cheer on our runners from one of the following locations and throughout the race course.
