Part of a series of half marathons designed especially for women, the Divas Half Marathon in San Francisco Bay hosts both a 13.1-mile race as well as a 5K race called the Girls 5K, all part of a weekend planned to both encourage and celebrate athleticism and fitness in women and girls of all ages.
Pink is a color you’ll definitely see at any Divas race, as women (both participants and volunteers) don pink feather boas, pink running shorts and shirts and pink headbands and accessories of really all kinds at these races, which now include events from April through November in New York, South Carolina, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
This year’s race will be the 7th annual of Divas Half Marathon in the San Francisco Bay area, and last year’s race saw more than 3,800 runners and walkers cross the finish line in both races combined, including just over 1,400 runners in the half marathon and more than 2,200 in the 5K.
The race features an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at Bayside Park near the San Francisco International Airport, and will unfold from there along a mostly flat and fast course that will never stray far from the waterfront and will feature views of the city off in the distance.
In addition to the planned nine water and sports drink refreshment stations along the course, organizers also plan to offer a feather boa station and tiara station out on the course during the race — so if you didn’t bring one of your own and the spirit moves you, you can join in and “glam up” with the gear many other runners will be wearing during the race.
Perhaps the best part of the race is the race finish, where every runner who crosses the finish line will receive not just a finisher’s medal, but a rose and a flute of champagne to celebrate finishing their 13.1 miles.
