The San Francisco Marathon 2011 gathers people of all ages, from all around the world. The event is actually divided into 5 parts, as follows: a full marathon, 2 half marathons, a progressive marathon and the 5k.
Throughout the years, the San Francisco Marathon has seen a lot of people, of different ages, cultures and ethnicities. It has seen people running in order to raise money for one of the Run Cause teams, military runners who engage in the marathon to run for their overseas posts and it has even seen kids running in the Youth Running Program. Either way, the San Francisco Marathon has many stories to tell and the San Francisco Marathon 2011 will be as good as it can get.
There are 20,000 runners who are participating in this year’s event and each and every one of them has a story which is worth hearing. This year’s Full Marathon run started and finished at the Embarcadero and people will run through Fisherman’s Wharf, The Marina and then across the Golden Gate Bridge. Then, they will return back to the finish line, through the Presidio and into Golden Gate Park. The contestants will then run down the Haight Street and once they hit the AT&T Park, they will know they are almost at the finish line; all they will have to do is continue running under the Bay Bridge and they will see the Finish Line.
