Fantastic crowd support. The sheer amount amount of runners and spectators can be a bit overwhelming but the energy is fantastic.
Everything is fairly well organized, but I heard that bag check in 2023 was a bit of an issue. I was surprised with the long bathroom lines considering this a WMM and the corrals were a bit congested at cutoff – all of this maybe due to the increased number of runners this year.
A bit disappointed with the race swag and offerings from the sponsor, but the expo had plenty of alternates.

The course is an out and back along the river. There was a change in the course for 2023 where it doesnt go through the city – not sure if its permanent or not. The course is flat and fast, with a gradual incline heading towards the finish. The course can be a bit quiet as it’s hard to get to parts of the course as a spectator – but the volunteers and other runners are quite supportive in the out and back portion.

The race is unique in that there are 2 half courses to choose from in addition to the marathon. There are different start times for each and there is a segment of the course where all 3 races converge on the same course which makes it interesting as you are running by runners in different states. I will say that at this convergence point, the route does get crowded, but organizers do a decent job in funneling runners through various secondary/alternate streets to avoid a traffic jam of runners.
The course is scenic and I appreciate the early start time as SF has a lot of micro-climates. The course was a bit short of port o potties, esp at the start of the halves in the presidio. They got me with the half challange – thought it was odd that the challange medal was bigger/better put together than the actual finishers medal. The race is a bit pricey for what you get, but I guess that’s what it is.

This race is a point to point ending in the downtown/heart of the city. The half and full start at the same time, end at the same place, but start in different places. The last 10 miles of the half and fill take the same course. It was absolutely stunning seeing the sunrise at the drop off point for the half. Fireworks to mark the start with the beautiful sky. Tempted to come back to do the full at a later point in time. Well run/organized race and the medals are huge!
