MEDAL PICK-UP

Upon completion of the third race in the series, runners will receive a special Golden State half Series medal to recognize their achievement. Medals will NOT be mailed.

RULES: Runners must complete the 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 2016 Town’s Half Marathon event, s/he must complete the SoFi Golden Gate Half in 2016 and the Livermore Half Marathon in 2017 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. The three events do not need to be in the same calendar year.
