Kaiser San Francisco Half Marathon,10k & 5k routes

The course starts at John F. Kennedy Drive just to the east of Stow Lake Drive. The course then winds its way through the park along closed roads before finishing in the South West corner of Golden Gate Park.

The course is a runner's favourite, not only due to the the fact this is often described as a fast course (perfect for those looking for a PB), but also thanks to the stunning scenery on offer.

    My first half marathon, and really loved it! Wasn't quite ready for the wind when running the return stretch down the beach, but other than that enjoyed the whole route. The event organizers do a great job in making sure so many people are ready to start at the right times, and the routes are incredibly well signalled. The finishing shirt is great, and the medal has a cool windmill on it, which made me laugh when thinking of the wind down the stretch! A great first half, and looking forward to doing again!
