Saturday (06/21/14) Route Description

On Saturday, you will be logging between 7-10 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 SOUTH along the Marina towards Fort Mason Hill. Crest this hill and head down into Aquatic Park. Run along the waterfront into Fisherman's Wharf. You will be on Jefferson.

Please keep a watchful eye for tourists, cyclists, and other traffic in Fisherman's Wharf. Continue running to the intersection of Jefferson/Powell. This is 1.5 miles.

Continue running along Jefferson which will eventually turn into the Embarcadero. At the intersection of Embarcadero & Bay there is a Houston's restaurant on the right. This is 2 MILES. KEEP RUNNING!

Everyone will running along the Embarcadero all the way to the MAIN entrance of the Ferry Building. This is 3 MILES. If you need to grab some water, use the restroom, or otherwise make a pit stop, this is a good place to do it.

Continue running along the Embarcadero until you reach the intersection of Embarcadero/Harrison! There is a Gordon Biersch on the other side of Embarcadero/Harrison for your visual cue. This is 3.5 MILES! Beginner runners turn around here and head back to the monkey bars for 7 MILES!

Everyone else will continue running along the Embarcadero. Right around the time Embarcadero is turning into ‘King Street’ you will come to the intersection of Embarcadero/Townsend. LOOK FOR PIER 38 ON YOUR LEFT! This is 4 MILES! Intermediate level runners will turn around and head back to the monkey bars for 8 MILES!

Advanced/Race level runners will continue running along King Street past AT&T Park (or whatever they call it today). You will run to the intersection of King Street and 4th Street. This is 4.5 MILES! Turn around and head back to the monkey bars. Advanced level runners will call it a day upon returning to the monkey bars with a total of 9 MILES!

Race level runners will need to pick up one extra mile. To pick up your extra mile, head along the paved path to the intersection of Marina/Broderick. This is half a mile from the monkey bars. Turn around and head back to the Marina Green Monkey Bars and you’ve got 10 miles for the day!
