After a week that saw numerous concerts, celebrities, and over a million people come to San Francisco for all the Super Bowl festivities, this weekend, by comparison, will be a quiet one. If you don’t feel like lounging about and want to burn off some of those calories from Sunday's devilishly tasty seven layer dip and other delectable treats, then head over to Golden Gate Park for the KP Half Marathon.
KP SF Half Marathon & 5K
Sunday, 8 a.m.
Golden Gate Park
The serene beauty of Golden Gate Park accompanied by the crashing waves along Ocean Beach make the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon one of the most scenic running courses in the country. The half marathon is a certified 13.1 mile course that will take runners though the park and out along the Great Highway where runners will then circle back into the park for the big finish.
If you’re not into endurance but speed, then try your hand at the 3.1 mile 5K race that will be completely contained within the park. Once runners have crossed the finish line, stick around for the post-race expo where all race finishers will be handed a commemorative medal.
Whether you are looking to test your speed or endurance, or just want to cheer someone on, Muni provides numerous options to Golden Gate Park courtesy of the 5 Fulton, 7 Haight/Noriega, 18 46th Avenue, 21 Hayes, 22 Fillmore, 23 Monterey, 24 Divisadero, 28 19th Avenue, 29 Sunset, 33 Ashbury/18th Street, 43 Masonic, and 44 O’Shaughnessy routes.
Muni service note: the 18 46th Avenue, 23 Monterey, 33 Ashbury/18th Street, 43 Masonic, and 44 O’Shaughnessy routes will have re-routes while the 5 Fulton, 7 Haight/Noriega, 21 Hayes, 22 Fillmore, 24 Divisadero, 28 19th Avenue, and 29 Sunset routes may see some residual delays near Golden Gate Park.
