How it works:

  • Register for a San Francisco Marathon race – 5k, half, full, or ultra
  • You will receive a confirmation email that will include Your Personal Referral Code
  • Share that code with your friends, family or post on social media
  • They must enter Your Personal Referral Code in to 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:

“I’m running the 2020 San Francisco Marathon and you should run with me!”

“To register, go to https://tsfm2020.rccal.com/Reg/Step1 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).

Once you register, you’ll get your own referral code, and if you refer friends you’ll receive free gifts too!”




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 2020 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?
When you pick up your race bib, it will be marked with the number of referrals you earned and we will give you the referral gifts at the Expo during race weekend. Items will not be shipped to you before the race.
