So in honor of my favorite marathons, The Wipro San Francisco Marathon, that is being ran this Sunday June 16, my fitness Friday topic is on destination races. How far are you willing to travel for a race? What makes something worth traveling for?
For me the San Francisco Marathon is always an awesome weekend, the expo is well organized, it is a city that I love to visit, the weather on race day is always amazing, the course is breathtaking, the support along the course is probably some of the best around. Oh and did I mention you get to cross the Golden Gate Bridge, not once but twice on an out and back. Along with the full marathon distance, the race offers 2 separate 13.1 mile distances, a 5k, various children’s races and for the ultra runners a double marathon.
