Rock N' Roll Running

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

This weekend thousands of runners will rock n' roll 13.1 miles around the city, and we'll continue work in the Sunset Tunnel to improve the N Judah. Here's what you need to know about getting to, from and around this weekend's hotspots.

Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon
Sunday, 6:30 a.m.
Various locations

Since 1998, the Rock N’ Roll Marathon Series has raised over $300 million for charity. This year will be no different as the half marathon shimmies through the streets of San Francisco. Starting along the Great Highway, the course will take runners through the Presidio, across the Golden Gate Bridge and back onto Marina Boulevard, culminating at the Civic Center for a post-race concert.

Due to street closures, race enthusiasts are encouraged to take Muni. Service on the 1 California, 2 Clement, 3 Jackson, 5 Fulton, 10 Townsend, 12 Folsom/Pacific, 18 46th Avenue, 19 Polk, 27 Bryant, 28 19th Avenue, 29 Sunset, 30 Stockton, 31 Balboa, 38 Geary, 45 Union/Stockton, 76X Marin Headlands Express routes and the California Cable Car Line will get you close to the action.

Muni service note: the 1 California, 2 Clement, 3 Jackson, 5 Fulton, 10 Townsend, 12 Folsom/Pacific, 18 46th Avenue, 19 Polk, 27 Bryant, 28 19th Avenue, 29 Sunset, 30 Stockton, 31 Balboa, 38 Geary, 45 Union/Stockton, 76X Marin Headlands Express routes plus the California Cable Car Line will see delays and/or re-routes.

Sunset Tunnel Improvement Project
Friday 7 p.m. to Monday 2 a.m.
Sunset Tunnel

Sunset Tunnel track, sewer, and infrastructure work continues this Friday at 7 p.m. and will run until 5 a.m. on Monday, March 30.

This project is slated to occur on weekends through June. Of the 15 original scheduled weekends, five have been completed. Work is also tentatively scheduled to take place on the weekend of April 10.

Muni service note: during construction hours, bus shuttles will substitute N Judah Line service between Duboce Avenue and Church Street to La Playa and Judah streets. The N line will see some residual service delays in both directions. N patrons should plan ahead and leave early when possible.

“On Tap” gives you a heads up about the big events in town and what Muni routes and lines will get you to the party. Look for this feature to be posted usually on Wednesdays for a look ahead to the weekend.
