Running San Francisco Marathon 2008

Exactly 1 month later (Aug 3, 2008), I’ll be running the San Francisco Marathon (First Half) – the coolest marathon right in the middle of Summer. Register Now!

Read the 2nd newlsetter for all the latest developments.

 Here are some of the features that make this marathon cool:

  • Music Miles – Local bands, cheerleaders and motivational signs and trivia through out the course
  • Best Running City in America – Voted by Runner’s World
  • Spectator Bus Service for friends and family to cheer up
  • Run through historic landmarks – Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Presidio, Home of San Francisco Giants, Bay Bridge
  • Going Green – Reducing the impact on environment

Watch the entire course of full marathon in the video footage that follows a group of runners, led by Dean Karnazes (the ultra marathon man).

And then part 2 (starting @ mile 10) …

This will be the 4th addition to my list of marathons:

  • San Francisco 2007
  • Silicon Valley 2006
  • San Francisco 2005 (1/2)

I completed PG&E @ Rancho last weekend in 84 mins, 45 secs (run+walk 56 mins to the top starting from the first parking lot and downhill running) and hope to run 4 more times in as many weekends before the race.

  1. Can you tell me what is your loop at Rancho? ie, what trails do you do, including PG & E? Good luck in the SF Marathon! :)

  2. I always start from the first parking lot (Coyote Trail), go past the Water tank to hit PG&E, keep going to the top most Vista point. Downhill is Upper High Meadow Trail to the second Vista point and then any of the routes down to Deer Hollow Farm and all the way back to the main parking lot.

    Stay tuned for a more detailed blog entry on that :)
