Epic Run #3-A Run in the Park...

Epic Run #3 is called 'A Run in the Park'. We launch from the Beach Chalet, but we'll be covering very different territory than we did last week.

We will cover most of our miles in Golden Gate Park, but there are a number of detours/side trips, so review the map and description carefully. This one is about 9.5 miles long. We will start/finish at The Beach Chalet parking lot located at 1000 Great Highway @ Ocean Beach

Epic Run #3-A Run in the Park Course Map!

-Take a quick RIGHT turn and head towards Lincoln. Take a LEFT turn on the dirt trail parallel to Lincoln.
-Follow the dirt trail for roughly two miles until you reach 16th Avenue. Take a RIGHT on 16th Avenue. 
-Follow 16th Avenue for just over half a mile (you will climb a decent set of stairs to continue on 16th) until you reach Moraga. 
-Take a LEFT on Moraga and head up the 'Mosaic Steps' to the top of Grand View Park. Take in the EPIC view and head down the other side of Grand View Park and run to Funston Ave.
