Saturday (5/23/15) Running Route Description

On Saturday, you will be logging between 4-7 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:



In short, we will head NORTH from the Marina Green Monkey Bars along Marina Boulevard. We'll veer RIGHT through the volleyball court area roughly 1/2 a mile into our run and head onto the Marina Promenade.

Continue running along the Marina Promenade in the direction of the Warming Hut. Eventually, you'll veer right and follow the dirt path to the Warming Hut. For the uninitiated, the Warming Hut is A BIG WHITE BUILDING WITH TABLES AND BENCHES IN FRONT OF IT.

It's hard to miss The Warming Hut. Once you reach the Warming Hut, you will have logged 2 MILES! Beginner level runners will turn around and head back to the monkey bars for 4 MILES!

Everyone else will continue past the Warming Hut onto a paved road that goes past a series of buildings (including some restrooms). You will pass these buildings and continue running along this path next to the water towards the base of the bridge.

The path curves around and dead ends at 'Hoppers Hands'. This is 2.5 MILES. Everyone will turn around here and head back to the monkey bars for 5 MILES. Intermediate runners are finished once they get back to the monkey bars!

Advanced and Race level runners will continue running SOUTH along the paved path past the Marina Safeway and UP Fort Mason Hill.  Crest the hill and look for the youth hostel on the right. Advanced runners will turn around here and head back to the monkey bars for 6 MILES!

Race level runners will head down the other side of Fort Mason Hill and into Aquatic Park. Run along the sidewalk adjacent to the waterfront. You will turn around At the end of Aquatic Park/Edge of Fisherman’s Wharf. Return to the monkey bars for 7 MILES!
