Golden Gate Half

Golden Gate Half Marathon



Take on California’s inaugural 5k challenge!

Save time & money by registering for 2 or all 3 events in the series at once here. A discount will automatically be applied during check out AND each event will automatically show into your account.

Achievement does not come from what you CAN do but from you didn’t know you COULD do! That’s why we’re introducing our brand new Golden State 5K Series!

The Golden Gate 5K, The Livermore 5K and The Town’s 5K race options individually offer an extraordinary running experience with stunning scenery, incredible camaraderie but most importantly… awesome bling! Challenge the family to kick it into high gear.

Go the distance to get the coveted Golden State 5K medallion! When you consecutively complete the 5K triad, you will receive this exclusive hardware that prominently displays each race’s emblem on a beautiful golden bear backdrop.

Only the runners who finish the Livermore 5k, The Town’s 5k and Golden Gate 5k in sequential order are eligible for the Golden State 5k Series medallion, so don’t wait to sign up for the next race!

Did you just complete the 2016 Golden Gate Half 5K? Well guess what, you’re one third of the way: you’re automatically entered into the series. Now you just have to complete Livermore and Towns.

Want to register for all three 5K at once? Just select the Tour Pass option when you sign up for any race. If you have already registered for a single race, you can still complete your Tour Pass through the Livermore Half Marathon, The Town’s Half Marathon or Golden Gate Half Marathon website.

So show off your Cali pride! Sign up for the Golden State Half Series today!

Challenge finishers receive this beautiful medallion!

RULES: Runners must complete the 5k or half marathon distance in each of the three events in consecutive order, starting with any of the three events. For example, if a runner started the series at the SoFi Golden Gate 5k, s/he must complete the 2017 Livermore 5k and 2017 Town’s 5k to qualify for the reward. If a person misses even one event in consecutive order, they will automatically be disqualified, and they must start over.

A runner can complete a variation of Half Marathon and 5K distances and still qualify for the Medallion.
