Epic Run #3 Course Map/Description (6ish miles)

We'll get things rolling with an easy 1/2 mile warmup run to Julius Kahn Park. We'll do some range of motion drills before starting the run.

Here's a link to the course map....

Here's a description of said course...

-Shortly after turning right you will cross the street and veer left onto Bay Area Ridge Trail. -Continue on Bay Area Ridge Trail (Look for signs and flour markings).  
-You'll follow Bay Area Ridge Trail across Park Avenue. Roughly a 1/4 mile later look for flour markings on your RIGHT and continue following Bay Area Ridge Trail to Rob Hill Campground (it will be on your left).
