Epic Run #2-Conquer The Coast

Epic Run #2 is called 'Conquer The Coast'. Similar to Epic Run #1, this course includes a little bit of everything. We'll spend some time on Land's End Trail, explore the Sea Cliff neighborhood, do a few side trips for some spectacular views, and more!

This one is about 8.5 miles long. We will start/finish at The Beach Chalet parking lot located at 1000 Great Highway @ Ocean Beach
