With Halloween now in the rear view mirror and thoughts turning toward holiday travel plans, let us not forget that the city still has a few more events in store before Thanksgiving arrives and kicks off the official start to the holiday season.

Golden Gate Half Marathon
Sunday, 7 a.m.
Aquatic Park

In what could arguably be considered one of the most scenic half marathons anywhere in the country, if not the world (overt local bias intended!), the 13.1 mile long Golden Gate Half Marathon is a visually stunning treat for runners and spectators alike.

The race course will take runners from Aquatic Park along the Marina through the Presidio over the Golden Gate Bridge into the Marin Headlands and then back to the finish line at Aquatic Park.

Runners and spectators can use the 19 Polk, 22 Fillmore, 28 19th Avenue, 30 Stockton, 47 Van Ness, 49 Mission/Van Ness, 76X Marin Headlands Express, and the Powell Hyde Cable Car Line to get to different sections of the course.

Muni service note: the 28 19th Avenue, 30 Stockton, 47 Van Ness and 49 Mission/Van Ness will have re-routes.

Veterans Day Parade
Sunday, 11 a.m.
The Embarcadero and North Point Street

Every Veterans Day provides an opportunity to say thank you to the men and women who have served in the armed forces, and in a year that marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, this year’s holiday parade offers a chance to come out and recognize those remaining but dwindling numbers of servicemen and women of the “greatest generation” for their lasting contribution to the nation.

This year’s parade will stage on North Point and Powell streets. From North Point Street the parade will travel north along The Embarcadero turning west on Jefferson Street disbanding at Jefferson and Hyde streets.

Parade watchers and participants can take the F Market, 8 Bayshore, 19 Polk, 39 Coit, 47 Van Ness, Powell Hyde and Powell Mason Cable Car lines.

Muni service note: during the parade service on the F Market, 8 Bayshore, 39 Coit, and 47 Van Ness will be affected.
