San Francisco’s US Half Marathon (The “Other” Half as they call it, as there is also a US Half in November) has a few major pluses and many minor minuses, but overall the race can’t be beat for beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and downtown San Francisco. In fact, in many ways, this race is far superior to the well-known San Francisco Marathon and 1/2 Marathon.
First plus: Location. You can’t beat running over the Golden Gate Bridge and through Crissy Park for wonderful and exciting views. The view alone keeps your feet moving.
