Running The San Francisco Marathon 2019 - Full Course Video

The 2018/2019 course has some new twists and turns that I have not seen in the past. The climb to the start of the Golden Gate Bridge is new and so is the turn around an the other end. I am a bit of a data nerd for this marathon as I have years of personal tracker info that I use to create my annual pace notes.

How I pace the San Francisco Marathon
If the course was perfectly flat I would still not run an even pace. I like a slow start and fast finish - Negative split. The slow start helps keep your heart rate down and the fast finish gives a great phycological boost as you pass other runners in the last third of the race.

On a flat course my first two miles would be 105% and 102% of the average and the last ten miles would be 98% - 99% of the average. Layered on top of that we have the ups and downs of the San Francisco course. If a hill slowed me be 12 seconds going up the same gradient would only give back 8 seconds on the way down. I have calculated this on a mile by mile basis from the GPS data I collected during the Full Course Video. One more thing to keep in mind is the accuracy of your watch data. It is normal to see a distance of 26.5 miles on your watch at the finish line. That is an extra 0.3 miles to account for in the Pace notes.
