Determinators, you're knocking out 10 miles this week!

Here's a link to the course map-

Sunday Course Map

We'll do our warmup routine on Crissy Field and then launch our usual spot. We will head EAST along the dirt path and head towards the Marina.

You'll run along the dirt path for roughly 3/4 of a mile until you hit the parking lot behind the Little Marina Green. Veer right through the parking lot and head towards Marina Boulevard.

Turn LEFT on Marina Boulevard and continue on Marina Boulevard past the Marina Safeway (this will be on your RIGHT).

When you pass the Marina Safeway, you will see a paved path that heads up Fort Mason Hill. Follow this path uphill until you crest Fort Mason Hill. Run a bit further and look over to your right.

You should see a building on the right on top of the hill. This is a Youth Hostel. This is 2 miles. Head down the other side of Fort Mason Hill and continue running on the sidewalk adjacent to Aquatic Park.

Run through Aquatic Park onto Jefferson Street and continue through Fisherman's Wharf. (*NOTE-It can get a bit busy in Fisherman's Wharf, so keep your wits about you.)

Run through Fisherman's Wharf onto the Embarcadero. Roughly half a mile past the intersection of Embarcadero/Bay is Embarcadero/Green. Just past the intersection of Embarcadero/Green is 'Pier 9' on the left. This is 4 miles.

Keep running along the Embarcadero and you'll eventually see the Ferry Building on the RIGHT. This is nearly 4.5 miles. You're almost halfway there!

Run under the Bay Bridge to the intersection of Embarcadero/Bryant. This is 5 MILES! Turn around and head back to our starting point for a total of TEN MILES!
