More than 11,000 runners tackled the Transamerica Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in San Francisco on Sunday. Under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s, the field traversed the hilly route — which included a run over the Golden Gate Bridge.
Chris Mocko finished the 13.1-mile course in 1:10:28 to win the men’s title, while Elle Pishny grabbed the women’s victory in 1:23:53. Both won the race last year. The field included former San Francisco 49ers running back Roger Craig, who crossed the line in 1:47:28.
“The terrains were great, the scenes were great and then going over the Golden Gate Bridge is such an iconic experience,” Craig said. “It was an epic event. Who wants to have the easy course? It’s all about challenging yourself — you feel better when you finish, because you know it was a tough course.”
