San Francisco, CA, USA: “The Wipro San Francisco Marathon” (TWSFM) was run Sunday, July 29, 2012 and this year drew more than 7,000 runners, a marked increase from the 4,000 who finished in 2006. Another 18,000 runners participated in the race’s two separate half marathons, as well as a 5K and Munchkins Kids Fun.
Nathan Krah and Devon Crosby-Helms were the winners of The 2012 Wipro San Francisco Marathon. Krah, a 26-year-old resident of Salt Lake City, completed the hilly 26.2-mile course in 2:26:45, while Crosby-Helms’ winning time was 2:44:05. Both athletes claimed a prize purse of $1,500.
The Wall Street Journal has called The San Francisco Marathon, “the race even marathoners fear.” But anyone who has run the race will tell you that the marathon’s tagline, “Worth the Hurt,” is true. It is worth the hurt.
