The first loop of this ultra, or back-to-back marathon, race starts at Mission St and The Embarcadero at midnight and finishes at Folsom St (The Embarcadero). The second loop of the course sees participants join the marathon category runners.

The first loop runs the official marathon course in reverse: under the Bay Bridge and around the Giant’s Ballpark, through Mission Bay, Potrero and Mission Districts, up Haight St and into Golden Gate Park. Runners will proceed along the Great Highway to return to Golden Park and up to The Presidio. From there, they will head to the Marina, Fisherman’s Wharf and back to the Main Start to join the marathon runners and complete the second loop.

The second loop runs through the city starting at the Ferry Building, along The Embarcadero, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Marina. Next, runners head back to the Golden Gate Bridge, down through the Presidio, along the Golden Gate Park and onto Haight St. After some loops in the Mission, Potrero and Mission Bay Districts it heads up to AT&T Park. Finally, runners run under the new Bay Bridge and back up to the Ferry Building.

The first loop will not be closed to non-participants and runners must run on the sidewalks.

Cut-offs: 5 hours for the first loop and 6 hours for the second one.

There will be on course support via monitors in vehicles during the first loop. Volunteers at the four aid stations will support runners only through the first loop offering water, snacks and first aid. During the second loop there will only be water stops. Drop bags are permitted between the first and second loop.
