Sunday Golden Gate Park Recovery Run (3/18)

EVERYONE will be logging 6 miles. Here's a link to the course map for your reference-

Sunday's Golden Gate Park Run

Everyone will launch from the paved path at the top of the stairs leading down to the ballfields.

You will follow Martin Luther King until it connects with Bowling Green Drive. Veer left on Bowling Green Drive. After roughly 200 meters, you will reach a stop sign. Turn right on this stop sign and head towards John F Kennedy Drive. Cross over to the RIGHT side of JFK and turn LEFT and head towards Ocean Beach (WEST) on JFK.

Run along JFK into Golden Gate Park. Eventually you will pass the Stow Lake Pavilion which is on the LEFT off of Stow Lake Drive. Once you pass Stow Lake Drive you will see a YELLOW sign indicating '13'0 Clearance'. This is 1.5 miles

Continue running along JFK underneath the overpass and through the intersection of JFK/Transverse. At this intersection there is a water fountain if you need it. Shortly after you run through this intersection, you will pass 'Lloyd Lake' on your RIGHT. Just past this lake you will see a sign/banner for 'SF Rec & Park'. This is 2 miles.

Continue running for another half mile until you approach Lake Spreckles on the RIGHT. As you approach Lake Spreckles, you will have logged 2.5 miles.

Cross over to the LEFT side of JFK. This side of JFK is a dirt path that gets a bit rocky at times, so please watch your footing carefully! You will be running slightly downhill for the next half mile until you reach the intersection of JFK and Chain of Lakes Drive East.

This is a controlled, four way stop intersection. This is 3 MILES from where we started. Turn around here and head back to the ballfield for a total of 6 MILES!
