Tuesday (8/21) Running Route Description

On Tuesday, you will be logging between 2-5 miles depending upon your training level. The link below should give you a relatively clear sense of where we're going. I've also included a verbal description beneath it:



This course is a new one for us!

We will head WEST along the Marina towards the Golden Gate Bridge. Run along Marina Boulevard until you reach Baker Street. TURN LEFT ONTO BAKER STREET via the pedestrian crosswalk. This is just over a half mile into our run. WATCH OUT FOR TRAFFIC!

Continue running on Baker Street for roughly 1/2 a mile. Note that there are a few controlled intersections you will run through. Please be safe and make sure to watch out for traffic as you go through these intersections. At the intersection of Baker Street and Lombard you will have logged 1 mile. Beginners turn around here and head back for a total of 2 MILES!

Everyone else will TURN RIGHT on Lombard Street and enter the Presidio via the Lombard Gate entrance. Follow Lombard (which eventually turns into Presidio Blvd) for roughly 1/1 a mile. At the intersection of Presidio Blvd and Letterman Drive, you will have logged 1.5 MILES! Intermediate runners turn around here and head back for a total of 3 MILES!

Advanced and Race level runners will continue along Presidio Blvd (which turns into Lincoln). Keep an eye out on your left for the Presidio YMCA. Once you see the Presidio YMCA on the left (there's a large parking lot in front of it), look for a cross street on your left. This is Funston. Turn LEFT on Funston and follow Funston for roughly 500 meters until you run into Moraga. There is a stop sign here and a controlled intersection. This is 2 MILES! Advanced runners will turn around here and head back for a total of 4 MILES!

Race level runners will Turn RIGHT at Moraga and continue running until you reach TAYLOR Street. This is roughly 2.2 miles. Turn RIGHT on Taylor and continue running for about another .3 miles. Taylor will eventually intersect with Lincoln. This is 2.5 MILES! Race level runners will turn around here and head back for 5 MILES!
