All of our runners have committed to raising $400 to help W.O.M.A.N., Inc. fight Domestic Violence in San Francisco and across California. This will be a very exciting chance for the agency to fundraise, receive visibility in the community and practice self-care by taking part in an event that promotes a stronger, healthier lifestyle.

San Francisco Rock n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon Practice Run #2

Welcome to our half-marathon group practice run! We’ll lead the group through a leisurely run along the start potion of the actual race course. Running the race course during training is a great way to mentally prepare, and get acquainted with the race conditions!

We’ll start at the race start location, finish with a stretch, and will be available to answer any other questions about the Rock ‘n Roll San Francisco half-marathon and W.O.M.A.N. Inc.!

Meet your practice run leader Alice at the meet up location. We’ll start the run promptly at 11 AM. Note: this will be a point A to point B run, so we strongly suggest taking public transportation since we will not start and end in the same location.
