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 are the turn by turn directions...
-Launch from Julius Kahn Park. Follow dirt trail towards Arguello. Turn right on Arguello.
-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 to Park Avenue.
-Turn RIGHT and follow Park Trail downhill. Look for flour markings.
-Follow Park Trail until you reach the intersection of Lincoln/McDowell.
-Beginnners turn around at the intersection of Lincoln/McDowell and return to Julius Kahn for 3 MILES (*Note-This is actually a bit more than 3 miles).
-Everyone else will continue running down McDowell towards Old Mason Street.
-At the bottom of the hill you will reach the intersection of McDowell and Old Mason Street. Intermediate runners will turn around here and head back to Julius Kahn for 4 MILES!
-Advanced and Race level runners will turn RIGHT on Old Mason Street and run along the paved pedestrian path towards Sports Basement.
