On Tap

Sunday Fun Runs

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

“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.

Sunday, 7 a.m.
AT&T Park

If you’re looking to make fitness an integral part of your 2015 agenda, why not get a jump start and challenge yourself with the 9th annual Urbanathlon? Try your hand at one of two races. The “classic” which is a 10- to 12-mile run peppered with 14 obstacles, while the “sprint” is a truncated three- to five-mile run with seven obstacles. Once you cross the finish line, stick around for the post-race festival featuring music, food and event sponsor demos.

Race participants and watchers can take the either the N Judah, T Third, F Market, 10 Townsend, 30 Stockton, 45 Union/Stockton, or 47 Van Ness.

Muni service note: N Judah, T Third, F Market, 30 Stockton, 39 Coit, 45 Union/Stockton, and 47 Van Ness may see minor delays along the course route.

Awesome 80s Run
Sunday, 7:30 a.m.
Crissy Field

Ay-oh oh-ay*…If you are a child of the 1980s or wish you were, the Awesome 80s Run lets you flashback and revel in the decade that made big hair, power ballads, built-in shoulder pads, and leggings all the rage. In addition to the 5K race there will be a costume contest and entertainment that will feature, what else, music and dance grooves of the 80s…like totally, for sure!

80s fanatics take either of these Muni service routes: 28-19th Avenue and 76X Marin Headlands to the Golden Gate Bridge stop.

Muni service note: no service will be affected.

(*For those who missed the awesome TV shows of the 80s and had to check, this is a reference to Tony’s Danza’s character from Who’s the Boss.)
