The San Francisco Marathon is a crown jewel for the city. Started in 2001 with the desire to create one of the most beautiful and challenging urban road race marathons in the United States, the Wipro San Francisco Marathon offers an idyllic summer running event. The course was built organically with the local runner in mind, the quintessential San Franciscan healthy outdoor-lover, embodying the natural, sustainable, genuine beauty of the city itself. True to local style, the Marathon values authenticity.
The race prides itself on being a bit different from the pack, like the city itself. The race is more individual, the course more challenging, the terrain more beautiful – an event The Wall Street Journal referred to as “The Race Even Marathoners Fear.” Attracting endurance athletes from around the country and the globe, those who come to this event share the same amazing aspects of the city that the residents love – to embrace and celebrate the running of the country’s toughest big city marathon and reward over 25,000 runners with unparalleled, breathtaking views and a Well Earned Finish.
