San Francisco Marathon & Half Marathon Medal (2013)

This is the finisher’s medal (top picture) for the San Francisco Marathon and Half Marathon that was held on June 16, 2013 in San Francisco, California.

Congratulations to RIF #140 Dennis who ran the 2nd Half this year and completed the Half It All Challenge (bottom pics)!

If you run the San Francisco Half Marathon, you can choose to run either the 1st Half or the 2nd Half of the marathon course. If you run each half in 2 consecutive years, then you complete the Half It All Challenge and get an additional medal. Pretty cool!

The San Francisco Marathon has a full marathon and 2 half marathons on race day. The First Half runs the first half of the marathon course and includes the Golden Gate Bridge. The Second Half runs the second half of the course and does not go over the bridge. If you run San Francisco, you have to run the bridge!
