We'll launch our LONGEST run of the season from our normal rendezvous point at the Marina Promenade. We'll head West on the Promenade towards the Warming Hut. Upon reaching the Warming Hut, you will run past the Warming Hut and take an IMMEDIATE left to head towards LONG AVENUE. Long Avenue is effectively a short hill that heads up towards Lincoln.
Everyone will head up Long Avenue along the shoulder until you reach a stop sign. This is LINCOLN.
Take a right on to the paved cyclist/pedestrian path and follow this
path to your right.
The path will eventually curve to
your left and dead ends. At this point you need to make your way onto
the shoulder of Lincoln. Head uphill on the shoulder of Lincoln for
roughly 200 meters. Look to your right and you will see the parking lot
for the visitor center for the GGB. Turn RIGHT into this parking lot and head towards the Golden Gate Bridge.
BE CAREFUL ON THE BRIDGE! THERE ARE TYPICALLY A REASONABLE NUMBER OF
AREN'T PAYING ATTENTION ON THE BRIDGE. ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE CYCLISTS,
RUNNERS, AND PEDESTRIANS FREQUENTLY USING THE BRIDGE. BE SMART AND BE
POLITE IF YOU NEED TO GET
Everyone will continue to the end of the bridge to the Visitor Center. This is roughly 3 MILES. Stop here to grab some water, use the restroom, and/or take a gel, clif
shot, etc. Everyone will turn around here and return to our starting point.
To pick up your remaining miles, you will head EAST
on the Marina Promenade past the East Beach. Eventually the promenade
runs into the parking lot for the volleyball courts. Cut through the
volleyball courts and get onto Marina Boulevard.
Turn LEFT on Marina Boulevard and run along Marina Boulevard past the Marina Safeway. Continue up Fort Mason Hill and head down into Aquatic Park on the left. Run through Aquatic Park along the sidewalk until it ends in a cul-de-sac at the edge of Fisherman's Wharf. There is a water found to the left of the cul-de-sac if you need to make a pitstop. Turn around here and head back to the start of our run for 11 MILES!
