The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 24 -         Mile 24 takes runners through the industrial-chic Dogpatch neighborhood, a historically gritty seaport that has recently evolved into one of San Francisco’s most quickly developed neighborhoods. This mile of the course travels down Indiana Street, across 22nd Street for a few blocks, then up 3rd Street and Illinois Street heading toward the water. New state-of-the-art condo construction is everywhere, and factory, warehouse and pre-1906-e...

The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 22 - Ever wondered what running the The San Francisco Marathon course is like? We asked local writer and runner, Erin Mara, to take us through the experience of running the The San Francisco Marathon from a mile-by-mile perspective. What better way to join in the experience of the course than being able to get a sneak peek?         Mile 22 starts on Guerrero Street at 14th Street, and the course runs a few blocks south before turning onto 16th Street....

The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 19 - Mile 19 takes runners through the final stretch of Golden Gate Park along wide, open John F. Kennedy Drive. This section is relatively flat, and begins just past the de Young Museum. It then passes another favorite cultural institution, the California Academy of Sciences. Runners looking down Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive to their right will spot the colossal building with its eye-catching, two-and-a-half-acre, hilly, green and undulating living roof...

The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 25 -         Mile 25 runs along the waterfront on Terry Francois Boulevard from 19th Street to Pier 48 in the Mission Bay neighborhood. Illinois heads along the perimeter of the SF Bay, then runners turn right on Terry Francois Boulevard, hugging the waterfront the entire mile, making for superbly scenic views. In the 1850s, the area was used for shipbuilding and repair, butchery and meat production, and oyster and clam fishing. Now, this neighborhood...

The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 23 -         Mile 23 takes runners through the Potrero Hill neighborhood, down 16th street to 17th and Pennsylvania Avenue, heading east toward the San Francisco Bay. Potrero is a residential area with an industrial vibe. 16th runs under the 101 freeway, passing warehouse buildings and bountiful condominium construction. Many think the crookedest street in San Francisco is Lombard Street, but it’s actually Vermont Street located here, between 20th and...

We asked local writer and runner, Erin Mara, to take us through the experience of running the The San Francisco Marathon from a mile-by-mile perspective. What better way to join in the experience of the course than being able to get a sneak peek? Just before runners exit the park at Mile 20, they pass recently renovated Kezar Stadium on their right. The outdoor athletic sta...
Cheering crowds usher runners out of the serenity of Golden Gate Park and onto historic Haight Street, the birthplace of hippie subculture. Now dotted with high-end boutiques, chic restaurants and hip cafés, the Haight, or Haight-Ashbury, neighborhood was the origin of America's counterculture, and the center of the Summer of Love in 1967.

The San Francisco Marathon Course: Mile 18 - Mile 18 continues on the paved path around Stow Lake, past some of the lake’s most scenic spots: a Chinese pavilion and a cascading waterfall. The Chinese Pavilion was a gift from San Francisco’s sister city, Taipei, and was dedicated in 1981. It features a bright red and green pagoda, where visitors can explore inside and take a seat, and often hosts small, picturesque wedding ceremonies. Next to the pavilion is a 110-foot artificial waterfall t...
