You will be logging between 2-5 miles depending upon your training level. Here's a link to the course map for your reference-
Tuesday's Golden Gate Park Run
We will actually be launching from the top of the staircase that leads
down to the ballfield and heading WEST on Martin Luther King. This
course will follow Martin Luther King for the first 2 miles out.
Continue running on the paved path on the RIGHT
side of MLK towards the direction of 19th Avenue. Once you reach the
intersection of MLK and 19th Ave, wait for the light to turn green and
head straight across and continue running on the paved path on the RIGHT side of MLK.
Once you reach the paved path on the other side of the intersection, you
will have logged 1 MILE. Look for chalk indicating 'RC 2'. Beginner runners will turn around here and head back for 2 MILES!
Everyone else will get on the sidewalk on the LEFT
side of Transverse and head NORTH towards Golden Gate Park. Continue
following Transverse Drive until it intersects with JFK. Get on the LEFT side of JFK and run EAST
into Golden Gate Park.
Roughly half a mile after the initial turn onto
Transverse towards Golden Gate Park you will reach the intersection of
JFK/Stow Lake Drive. This is 1.5 MILES.
There will also be a 'RC3' in chalk here. Intermediate runners will
turn around here and head back for a total of 3 MILES!
Everyone else will continue running along the sidewalk on the left side
of JFK. Roughly half a mile later you will see the De Young Museum
approaching on your RIGHT. Directly across from the De Young Museum is a
pedestrian crosswalk near JFK/10th AVE. This
is 2 MILES. Look for a 'RC4' in chalk on the ground. Advanced
runners will turn around here and head back for a total of 4 MILES!
Race level runners will continue running along the sidewalk
on the left side of JFK. Roughly half a mile later you will pass
JFK/Observatory Way. Look to your left and you will see a large white
building. This is the Flower Observatory. Once you are directly across
from the Flower Observatory, you will have logged 2.5 MILES. Look for a 'RC5' in chalk on the ground. Race level runners turn around here and head back for 5 MILES!
