Nike Women’s Marathon, the largest woman’s marathon in the world, takes place in San Francisco, California. The Nike Women’s Marathon is open to both women and men. A full 26.2 mile certified marathon course is available, as well as a half-marathon distance race of 13.1 miles. If you are looking to qualify for the Boston Marathon, you can do so on this USATF-certified course. However, it is quite hilly and difficult, so be prepared! Breathtaking course views from the start in Union Square to the finish along the Pacific Ocean will surely impress everyone. The event raises funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The course is about 80% asphalt. The race will kick off in Downtown San Francisco at Union Square and head through the financial district past the famous TransAmerica building. It will then proceed along the San Francisco Bay past Fisherman’s Wharf, Aquatic Park, Ghirardelli Square, Fort Mason and Marina Green while revealing breathtaking views of Alcatraz and The Golden Gate Bridge. The course then weaves through the Presidio and Sea Cliff districts, out to the Great Highway, through Golden Gate Park and south around Lake Merced, finishing just north of the Great Highway along the Pacific Ocean. The end of the Nike Women’s Marathon is an extra-special treat for the ladies. San Francisco firemen, dressed in tuxedos, greet the runners as theycross the finish line.
