San Francisco Marathon

September 18, 2021 @ 5:30 am - September 19, 2021 @ 4:00 pm


MARATHON: Take yourself on a running tour of San Francisco, and complete our challenging yet rewarding course. Whether you’re taking on your first marathon or your 50th, your unforgettable journey will take you from the waterfront, over the Golden Gate Bridge, past iconic landmarks and through historic neighborhoods.

1ST HALF MARATHON: Race along the city’s gorgeous waterfront, past iconic landmarks, and get the most stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge available as you take on the 1st Half of The Biofreeze San Francisco Marathon course. Over 13.1 miles, you’ll take in the Embarcadero near the Ferry Building, the seals at Fisherman’s Wharf, the serene calm of Golden Gate Park and the finish line festival with your medal waiting for you.

2ND HALF MARATHON: Run San Francisco like a true local. Beginning in Golden Gate Park, the 2nd Half Marathon brings you through historic and quintessential San Francisco neighborhoods, including Haight-Ashbury, Dogpatch and the Mission District. Race past AT&T Park, home of the SF Giants, just before the finish line and your finisher medal.

5K: This year you have two 5k races to choose from, we will be holding a 5k on both Saturday and Sunday of Race Weekend. On Sunday, whether you’re racing for speed or pushing your little one as part of our stroller division, our fast, flat 5K course has something for everyone. Experience breathtaking views of iconic landmarks, such the Bay waterfront, Treasure Island, Coit Tower and more. Celebrate with runners from all distance events at our finish line festival.

ULTRA: Challenge yourself to take on the incredible feat of running two marathons, back-to-back, to benefit your favorite charity. Starting at midnight, run the full marathon course in reverse, with a brief run detour along the Great Highway, before joining other runners to complete the Official Full Marathon course.
