Due to the Giant Race coming through Marina Boulevard on Saturday morning, we will be meeting at the NORTH parking lot of Lake Merced. This parking lot is located 'roughly' where Sunset Boulevard runs into Lake Merced Boulevard. Here is a link to give you a better sense of exactly where this is located-
North parking lot of Lake Merced
The course everyone is running is a pretty simple out/back course on Sunset Boulevard. You will be logging 3-7 miles depending upon your training level. Here is a link to the course map for your reference-

After doing a brief warmup and our range of motion drills, we will cross the pedestrian crosswalk and head NORTH on Sunset Boulevard There is a path that runs parallel to Sunset Boulevard on the LEFT. This is where you want to run.
The cross streets are 'roughly' alphabetical so pay close attention to the cross streets as you are running. Beginner level runners will continue running up Sunset Boulevard until you reach the intersection of Sunset & Ortega. Turn around here and head back to the Lake Merced parking lot for 3 MILES!
Intermediate, Advanced, and Race level runners will continue running up Sunset Boulevard until you reach the intersection of Sunset & Kirkham. Intermediate runners will turn around at this intersection and head back to the Lake Merced parking lot for 4 MILES!
Advanced and Race level runners will continue running up Sunset. Roughly half a mile later you will arrive at the intersection of Sunset & Martin Luther King. This intersection is actually under the Lincoln Boulevard overpass. Advanced runners will turn around here and head back to the Lake Merced parking lot for 5 MILES!
Race level runners will TURN RIGHT at this intersection and get on the paved path on the LEFT side of MLK. Follow this path along MLK for 'roughly' a mile until you hit the intersection of MLK and Transverse. This is a controlled intersection with stop signs and a water fountain. You will see stop lights for 19th Ave. here. In other words, it's a conspicuous spot ;) Race level runners will turn around here and head back to the Lake Merced parking lot for 7 MILES!
