SFM 2020 October “Real Time” Virtual Race Series



Birth Date & Gender

Let’s make a run from 2020! For the next six months participate in our “Real-Time” virtual race experience. On the last Sunday of each month, October through March you will be able to participate in a Real-Time virtual race, have your friends and family follow along via the app, and see your Real-Time leader board results as you participate.  When you complete your race your final results will automatically be posted on the results page, just like a real race!

How does the “Real-Time” App work?:

  • Download the GPS enabled App on your phone
  • Choose one of the courses we create or run your own course
  • Toggle back and forth between the “race” course and the actual course you are running
  • See your live leaderboard results and mile splits in real-time!
  • When your race is over check out your final results and where you stand on the leaderboard
  • Share the app with your friends and family it’s free!  They can follow along as you run your race!


  • Run or walk. You choose the location; a trail, city streets, your neighborhood or even a treadmill
  • Run your race during our “Real-Time” live event on October 25th, or run any day during the month, and post your results manually on our leader board.
  • If you run during the Real-Time event, you will have a 24-hour window in which you can participate. Start at any time that works for you during the 24-hour window, just make sure you can complete your race before the event times out.
  • At the completion of the 6th race in March, we will ship a commemorative shirt to you!

How do I register?:

  • Add all 6 events (Months) to your shopping cart, Oct. – Mar.
  • At checkout enter the discount code that was sent to you via an email from The San Francisco Marathon
  • In October we will send you information about getting the app set up and Race Day specifics
