We'll get things rolling with an easy 1/2 mile (approx) warmup run towards the Presidio Golf Course from A Runner's Mind (3575 Sacramento St).
We'll do some range of motion drills before starting the run. Here's a link to the course map...
Saturday ARM Long Run Course Map
Here's a description of said course...
-We'll run along Mountain Lake Trail adjacent to the Presidio Golf Course underneath the 19t Ave/Park Presidio overpass. Continue on the paved path for 200-300 meters.
-Look for a 'RC' directing you RIGHT onto a narrow, paved pedestrian path.
-Continue on this path for roughly 1/4 of a mile. Look for a 'RC' directing you to head downhill onto a trail. Follow this trail to Lobos Creek Trail.
-Lobos Creek Trail will eventually terminate at El Camino Del Mar. This is 2.5 miles. Beginners will turn around here and head back to A Runner's Mind for FIVE MILES!
-Everyone else will continue on El Camino Del Mar towards Seacliff. Look for chalk markings with 'RC' directing you where to go!
-Upon reaching El Camino Del Mar/30th you will have logged 3 miles. Intermediate runners will turn around here and head back to A Runner's Mind for SIX MILES!
-Advanced and Race level runners will continue on El Camino Del Mar onto Land's End Trail. Roughly 1/4 of a mile after getting on the trail, you will see a flour arrow directing you back. This is 3.5 miles. Advanced runners will turn around here and head back to A Runner's Mind for SEVEN MILES!
-Race level runners will continue for another half mile until you encounter a flour arrow directing you back. This is 4 miles. Race runners will turn around here and head back to A Runner's Mind for EIGHT MILES!
