A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUNDAY’S RUN-
In short, we will head NORTH from the Marina Green
Monkey Bars on along Marina Boulevard for roughly 1/2 mile until we
reach the grassy, volleyball court area on the right. Take a right and
cut through the volleyball court area and run through the parking lot
behind it. Turn LEFT onto the Marina Promenade which is a fire road/dirt
Continue running on this path for roughly a mile.
Eventually, this path will veer to the right towards the Warming Hut.
Continue running towards the Warming Hut. For the uninitiated, the
Warming Hut is A BIG WHITE BUILDING WITH TABLES AND BENCHES IN FRONT OF
IT. Hopefully, it will be hard to miss). The Warming Hut is 2 MILES!
Continue past the Warming Hut onto a paved road that
goes past a series of buildings (including some restrooms). You will
pass these buildings and continue running along this path next to the
water towards the base of the bridge. The path curves around and dead
ends at 'Hoppers Hands'. This is 2.5 MILES. Everyone will turn around
here and head back towards the monkey bars. Upon reaching the monkey bars you will have logged 5 miles.
Continue running SOUTH along the
paved path past the Marina Safeway and up Fort Mason Hill. Beginner
level runners will crest this hill and run to the point where the path
starts to head down towards Aquatic Park and then return to the monkey
bars for 6 MILES!
Everyone else will continue down the
hill into Aquatic park. Run along the sidewalk adjacent to the
waterfront. Intermediate runners will turn around At the end of
Aquatic Park/Edge of Fisherman’s Wharf. There is a large, circular
cul-de-sac at the end of Aquatic Park. This is where you turn around.

on Jefferson. Upon reaching the intersection of Jefferson/Powell, Advanced level runners will turn around and head back to the monkey bars for 8 MILES!
