    • Double Up Challenge Participants will receive special edition Double Up Medal only
  • Souvenir bib that you can print at home to wear on your run

You can pick up your swag at the 2019 Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon Expo or after you sign up will receive an email with information on how to purchase shipping to have it mailed three weeks after race day.

Still want to take part in our challenges? No problem!  After race day on July 28th, you will receive an email reminder to upload your race from your fitness tracker (i.e. Fitbit, Strava, Runkeeper, etc.) by September 30, 2019 to verify your eligibility.

Virtual race participants are not eligible for age group or overall awards.

  • Do we submit our times?

    If you are running the race only and aren’t interested in participating in one of our challenges, you do not have to track or submit your times. Registering is your pledge to complete these virtual runs. If you are participating in a challenge you will have to upload your race via a Fitness Tracker App to verify your eligibility.

  • When will I receive my virtual run medal?

    You encourage you to join us at our Expo on July 26-27th to pick up your swag and experience what our vendors have to offer. You can add shipping after you have already registered if you can’t be with us on race weekend. Shipping can take up to 4 weeks.  International participants should expect longer delivery time.

  • I don't live in the United States. Can I still participate?

    Yes, we welcome runners from all over the world! It may take a bit longer for you to receive your swag if you live outside the United States, but we can still send you them!

  • What do I do if I cannot participate once I have registered?

    All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable. Once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund. If you cannot participate in the virtual race, you may not give or sell your number to anyone else, and entry fees will not be transferred from year to year. Keep in mind you have from the day you register until 60 days after our event to complete your virtual event.

  • How do I submit my pictures or get involved on social media?

    We encourage participants to take a photo or short video during the respective races and post it to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the tag #BSFMVirtualRun.
