2008 San Francisco Marathon - This Sunday, August 3rd

Get the lowdown on this scenic race at the official San Francisco Marathon Web site. The race has also put together a handy San Francisco Marathon Guide in PDF format.

Check the site for last-minute instructions, picking up shirts and bib numbers, the schedule for marathon weekend, the San Francisco Marathon Expo, post-race entertainment (including the barbecue), and more.

You can find some videos taken along the San Francisco Marathon course from a local SF blog, which were apparently originally on a newspaper's Web site.

The events also including a Half Marathon (running in two different halves), a 5K run and walk, and a "progressive marathon," in which participants "run or walk 26.2 miles over a period of weeks or months, finishing their final 3.1 miles on Race Day in either the 5K."

Should be a great weekend in Frisco.
