About the San Francisco Marathon:
The San Francisco Marathon draws huge crowds of both participants and spectators. People come from around the country to attend this Event in San Francisco, and Hotel Diva is happy to welcome out of towners to enjoy our upscale Accommodations.
In addition to the marathon, several other Events take place during the San Francisco Marathon Race Weekend, which takes place from July 29th through July 31st. In addition to the full marathon, runners can opt to take part in one of the 2 half marathons, a 5k, or an ultramarathon, which is an overnight race.
Another highlight of the Race Weekend is the Race Expo, which takes place at Fort Mason Center. Expo attendees can see the latest in health and fitness products, get advice from fitness experts, get free health screenings, and much more. Race packets and bibs must be picked up by runners at the Expo. A 3rd party can pick up the packet if they have a photo copy of the runners photo ID and the bib number confirmation email.
More than 26,000 runners will participate including world-class elite runners and those who are running in an organized race for the very first time. Another 80,000 people will line the race route to cheer on the runners as they make their way toward the finish line. Speaking of the race route, it’s one of the most beautiful in the country. Runners will run by the waterfront, over the Golden Gate Bridge, through lovely neighborhoods, and by some of the City’s most well-known landmarks.
