Great course, great views from the Golden Gate Bridge! The switchbacks at the end of the bridge are a little challenging, but it is a fun and challenging race. I would definitely recommend doing this boutique race - I love that it is a smaller sized race because it is not too overwhelming of a start or a finish.

2013's long sleeve tech tee is one of my favorites but unfortunately the threading is coming apart a little bit. It's not a huge deal but I wished the material was a little more hardy.

Overall, well-organized race and I always recommend this to my friends!

First time doing this race, and like the course which I've run before.

Medal and shirt are super nice.

Crowded on the bridge running, but other than that, course is easy and fun. plenty of bathrooms.

Will do it again next year!

This was my most exciting half marathon! I loved it! Favourite part: the bridge, the scenery. I think I might have liked a wave start to get up to my speed and rhythm faster. All else was perfect!
