“There is nothing more rewarding than to be able to provide additional spaces to those who exemplify the true spirit of the race and were unable to register before we concluded registration at 50,000 participants,” said race general manager Angela Fang.  “We’re grateful to the city of San Francisco for working with us to accommodate the additional infrastructure and services that we’ve put in place  to stage the surplus runners safely.”
