Tuesday (6/1) Running Route Description

On Tuesday, you will be logging between 2-5 miles depending upon your training level. The link below should give you a relatively clear sense of where we're going. I've also included a verbal description beneath it:



We will head north along the Marina to the intersection of Mason/Halleck. This is right next to Crissy Field Center and is 1 mile into our run. BEGINNERS will turn around here and head back to the Marina Green Monkey Bars for 2 MILES!

Everyone else will follow the pedestrian crosswalk and turn LEFT onto Halleck.You will be running uphill for about a block until you reach a controlled intersection with a stop sign. This is the intersection of Halleck/Lincoln. Turn RIGHT onto Lincoln and run along the sidewalk. Stick to the sidewalk on the right and follow Lincoln.

Right around Lincoln/Taylor you will see chalk markings indicating 'FF 3' in the middle of the sidewalk. Intermediate runners turn around here! Turn around here and head back to the monkey bars for 3 MILES!

Everyone else will continue past the 'FF 3' and continue on Lincoln. You will eventually see the cemetery on your left and Lincoln will curve to the left. Lincoln curves around to the left and downhill slightly. You will find yourself at a 4 way stop at the intersection of Lincoln/McDowell. Look for chalk markings indicating 'FF 4'. Advanced runners turn around here. Turn around and head back to the monkey bars for 4 MILES!

Race level runners will continue past the 'FF 4' chalk markings and continue on Lincoln as it curves around to the right. Eventually you will get a spectacular view of the Marina/Crissy Field off to your right near the intersection of Lincoln/Long(there's a stop sign here at the top of Long). There's a stop sign here and you will see an 'FF 5' in chalk right before Lincoln starts heading uphill. Race runners turn around here. Head back to the monkey bars for 5 MILES!
