Progression Course Map
You'll be shifting gears several times throughout the course of this run. You'll run easy pace, tempo pace, and 5K race pace multiple times throughout the course of this run.
We will head NORTH from the Marina Green Monkey Bars on along Marina Boulevard at EASY PACE until we reach the intersection of Mason/Halleck. This is 1 MILE! Look for a 'TP' in chalk on the ground. Here you will segue into TEMPO PACE for a mile.
Continue running on the paved path along Mason past Sports Basement. Shortly after we pass Sports Basement, there is a lengthy straight stretch and a funny looking metal power box on your RIGHT. This is 1.5 MILES. Continue running at tempo pace for another half mile until you reach the Warming Hut.
The Warming Hut is 2 MILES into your run. Segue into 5K race pace. Maintain this pace for 1/2 a mile until you reach Hopper Hands at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. This is 2.5 MILES. Turn around here and segue into EASY PACE for 1/2 a mile to the Warming Hut to recover.
Once you reach the Warming Hut, segue into TEMPO PACE for a mile. Look for a funny looking metal power box on your LEFT and a '5P' on the ground in chalk. Segue into 5K race pace.
Maintain this pace for 1/2 a mile until we reach the intersection of Mason/Halleck. Look for an 'EP' in chalk on the ground and maintain EASY PACE for a mile back to the Marina Green Monkey Bars!
