This Weekend: The Urbanathlon and Sunset Tunnel
While last weekend looked like construction central with an array of projects taking place throughout the city, this weekend will be much less hectic as the last pre-holiday weekend looks to be a quiet one...unless you're grunting and screaming your way through this...

Men’s Health Urbanathlon
Sunday, 7 a.m.
If you’re looking to burn some pre-Thanksgiving calories, consider challenging yourself at this year’s 10th annual Urbanathlon. Participants will tackle one of two races, either the “classic” which is an 11.2-mile run peppered with 18 obstacles, while the “sprint” is a truncated 3.8-mile run featuring eight obstacles. Once you cross the finish line in personal triumph, be sure to stick around for the post-race festival featuring music, food and event sponsor demos.
Race participants and spectators can take either the N Judah, T Third, F Market, 8 Bayshore, 30 Stockton, 39 Coit, 43 Masonic, or the Powell Mason Cable Car Line to get to different sections of the race.
Muni service note: The 39 Coit Route and F Market Line will have re-routes, while the N Judah, T Third, 8 Bayshore, 30 Stockton, 43 Masonic and Powell Mason Cable Car lines may see minor delays along the race course.
Sunset Tunnel construction work continues this weekend beginning on Saturday at 2 a.m. running until 3 a.m. Monday morning. During tunnel work, bus shuttles will provide N Judah Line service between Duboce Avenue and Church Street and Ocean Beach. Also, Nextbus time predictions for the N Line will not be available over the weekend.
The Muni Metro subway continues to close early each night at 9:30pm for system upgrades. Metro bus shuttles will operate between St. Francis Circle and Market and Spears streets from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
