The San Francisco Marathon attracts runners from around the country who come to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the race course.
For some, this Event in San Francisco is a chance to fulfill a personal goal. For others, it is a stepping stone to meeting a goal: running in the Boston Marathon. The San Francisco Marathon is an official qualifier for Boston, and many Boston Marathon hopeful will register for this race in an attempt to qualify. Hotel Diva and other San Francisco Hotels welcome both runners and spectators who come from around the country.
This Event in San Francisco actually includes several races: full marathon, 2 half marathons, ultra marathon, and a 5K. (Note that only the full marathon serves as a qualifier for Boston.) The various races give runners of different fitness levels a chance to compete in this fun Event in San Francisco.
The race course, which starts at the Ferry Building, takes runners along the coast, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and through Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park. It’s one of the most scenic marathon routes in the country. Spectators line the course, cheering on the runners as they make their way toward the finish line, which is at Cupid’s Arrow.
A Race Expo takes place in conjunction with the San Francisco Marathon. The Expo, which takes place on July 24th and July 25th, features information for runners and for anyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle. It is of note that race packets cannot be picked up on race day. They must be picked up at the Expo.
