Taste The Trail Recovery Run (5.25 miles approx)-6/22/14

Sunday's recovery run will include a few 'tastes of the trail'. If you've never done trails before, don't worry!

This run has a mix of paved roads and trails. The trail segments are not terribly technical/challenging. That being said, there is 'some' climbing involved as is the case with pretty much any trail.

Here's a link to the course map-

Taste The Trail Recovery Run

We'll launch from A Runner's Mind @ 3575 Sacramento and head down Locust Street to Julius Kahn Park. Once we arrive in the park we'll do some simple range of motion drills and then proceed with our run.

We'll run along the dirt path adjacent to Julius Kahn and connect with 'Ecology Trail'. We'll follow Ecology Trail for roughly a mile until you run into the Presidio. I will put down some flour markings on the trail indicating where to turn at a few key junctures.

The Ecology Trail runs right into a parking lot behind a building in the Presidio. Run directly ahead to Moraga Street and turn LEFT. Again, I will put some chalk markings down here.

Follow Moraga to Montgomery and turn RIGHT on Montgomery.

Follow Montgomery to Lincoln and turn LEFT behind the Walt Disney Museum and continue running on the paved path (aka-Lincoln).

Continue following Lincoln past the cemetery to the intersection of Lincoln/McDowell. At this intersection, turn LEFT onto Park Trail and follow the flour markings until you see a flour arrow indicating turn around (this is roughly 1/4 of a mile).

Turn around here and head back the way you came for just over 5 MILES!
