Here’s your recap! 6:30am on October 18th in San Francisco marked the 12th consecutive half marathon run for the ladies of Nike. More than 25,000 women gathered at the start line in Union Square, ready to run along the Marina Green and through Golden Gate Park.
The 1984 Olympic women’s marathon champion Joanie Benoit Samuelson, paratriathlete Sarah Reinertsen, Olympian and San Francisco native Shannon Rowbury, and American distance runners Jordan Hasay and Alexis Pappas were some of the participants that burned calories and said yes to sweat. This half marathon marked the end of Nike’s Women Event Series that started in March.
