Saturday (1/29) Run Course Description

Everyone is logging an easy 6 miles for Saturday's recovery run. Here's a link to the course map-

Saturday's Course Map.

This course is new to us, but the terrain we're covering should be familiar to you. We will do a short warmup jog from Presidio Sport/Medicine located at 1162 Gorgas Ave #B to Crissy Field Center at the intersection of Mason/Halleck where we'll stop and do our range of motion routine.

Once we're done with our warmup, we will cross the pedestrian crosswalk and turn LEFT on Mason and head in the direction of SportsBasement. Follow Mason for 3/4 of a mile and Mason will eventually turn into a fire road and head towards the Warming Hut.

Run past the Warming Hut (there are bathrooms and water fountains here) and continue running all the way to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge/Hopper's Hands. Turn around here and back towards the Warming Hut.

Continue past the Warming Hut and follow the dirt path as it veers LEFT along the Marina Promenade. Continue running along this path until you reach the parking lot for the volleyball courts.

Cut through the parking lot and head through the volleyball court area back onto the Marina. Follow the Marina to the monkey bars and continue running. You will crest our favorite hill (Fort Mason Hill) and turn around just before the hill starts to head down towards Aquatic Park.

Turn around and head all the way back to Crissy Field Center (where we started) @ the intersection of Mason/Halleck. You will have logged 6 MILES!

Walk up to Presidio Sport+Medicine from Crissy Field Center afterward for the Alter G clinic!
