Mill Valley resident, GM and co-founder of SF Running Co. in Tam Junction and Equator Coffees ambassador Jorge Maravilla won the 40th San Francisco Marathon on Sunday, July 23, crossing the finish line with a time of 2:28:26, besting runner-up Semereab Gebrekidan by nearly three minutes.

Maravilla, a 39-year-old native of El Salvador who has dual U.S. citizenship, navigated the 26.2-mile loop course that spanned from near the Ferry Building Marketplace, across the Golden Gate Bridge and back. The race was Maravilla’s latest in his quest to crack the 2-hour, 19-minute threshold in the marathon to qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, according to the Marin Independent Journal.

“I’m very grateful to have the incredible support and love of our Marin community,” Maravilla told the IJ. “I couldn’t do it without the support and love I’m surrounded by.”
