Tuesday Golden Gate Park Run (02/01/16)

You will be logging between 3-6 miles depending upon your training level. Here's a link to the course map for your reference-

Wednesday's Golden Gate Park Run

We will actually be launching from the top of the staircase that leads down to the ballfield and heading WEST on Martin Luther King. This course will follow Martin Luther King for the first mile out.

Continue running on the paved path on the RIGHT side of MLK towards the direction of 19th Avenue. Once you reach the intersection of MLK and 19th Ave, wait for the light to turn green and head straight across to Transverse Drive. Get on the sidewalk on the LEFT side of Transverse and head NORTH towards Golden Gate Park.

You will continue following Transverse Drive until it intersects with JFK. Get on the LEFT side of JFK and run EAST into Golden Gate Park. Roughly half a mile after the initial turn onto Transverse towards Golden Gate Park you will reach the intersection of JFK/Stow Lake Drive. This is 1.5 MILES. There will also be a 'MM3' in chalk here. Beginners turn around here and head back for a total of 3 MILES!

Everyone else will continue running along the sidewalk on the left side of JFK. Roughly half a mile later you will see the De Young Museum approaching on your RIGHT. Directly across from the De Young Museum is a pedestrian crosswalk near JFK/10th AVE. This is 2 MILES. Look for a 'MM4' in chalk on the ground. Intermediate runners will turn around here and head back for a total of 4 MILES!

Advanced and Race level runners will continue running along the sidewalk on the left side of JFK. Roughly half a mile later you will pass JFK/Observatory Way. Look to your left and you will see a large white building. This is the Flower Observatory. Once you are directly across from the Flower Observatory, you will have logged 2.5 MILES. Look for a 'MM5' in chalk on the ground. Advanced runners turn around here and head back for 5 MILES!

Race level runners will continue running along the sidewalk on the left side of JFK. You will run through the intersection of JFK/Stanyan onto the RIGHT side of the panhandle which runs parallel to Oak Street. Continue running on the panhandle until you reach the intersection of Oak/Central. This is 3 MILES. Look for a 'MM6' in chalk on the ground. Turn around here and head back for 6 MILES!
