About This Activity

Join us for the 33rd Annual Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon & 5K Presented by Pamakid Runners on February 14, 2016.


Take heart: Our annual event has a special date in 2016....February 14th. In honor of San Francisco hosting Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7th, we have moved our race to Valentine's Day for next year only.

The Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon is a certified 13.1 mile course and ranked as one of the most scenic in the country by Runner’s World. This race has been selected as Road Race of the Year by the Road Runners Club of America.

The 5K is a fast, downhill 3.1 mile course certified by USA Track & Field. As in past years, the 5K will start at the same time and from the same start line as the half marathon. A block away from the half marathon finish, the 5K finish line will be followed by the ‘5K Fun Zone’ that will lead runners and walkers into the Kaiser Permanente post-race expo.

The race is limited to 10,000 participants.
