Sunday Long Run Description (5/25/14)

On Sunday, you will be logging between 5-8 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:

Sunday’s Run Course!


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 trail.

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 towards the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. You will run roughly half a mile until you reach 'Hoppers Hands' which is right at the base of the bridge. This is a dead end, so you have to turn around. This is 2.5 MILES. Beginner runners will have logged 5 MILES upon returning to the Monkey Bars.

Everyone else will continue running SOUTH along the paved path past the Marina Safeway and UP Fort Mason Hill. Just as the hill is about to head down into Aquatic Park, Intermediate runners will turn around and head back to the monkey bars for 6 MILES!

Advanced and Race level runners will run down the hill into Aquatic Park. Run along the sidewalk adjacent to the waterfront. Advanced level runners will turn around at the end of Aquatic Park/Edge of Fisherman’s Wharf. Advanced runners will return to the monkey bars for 7 MILES!

Race level runners continue into Fisherman's Wharf until they reach the intersection of Jefferson/Powell. Turn around here and head back to the monkey bars for 8 MILES!
