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 2017 SoFi Golden Gate Half, s/he must complete the 2018 Livermore Half Marathon and the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon in 2018 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.
