SF Aloha Run routes

THE COURSES

10K – 6.2 miles & 5K – 3.1 miles
Both the 5K and the 10K start on Old Mason Street across from Sports Basement. Runners make a left through the East Beach parking lot and then a left on the San Francisco Bay Trail which parallels the water. The turnaround is located just before Fort Point. Runner’s make their way back on the paved path next to Old Mason Street. 5K runners will make a left to cut through Crissy Field and make their way to the finish, while 10K runners will continue straight for a second loop before finishing through Crissy Field just like the 5K’ers. This route is fast, flat and scenic with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Alcatraz and more!

For our Keiki runners, ages 6-13, youth will dash along a dedicated 1 mile course and special champion finish line.

Tot Trot

    Did the 10K in 2019

    Volunteers had no idea about directing runners - tried to send me round for 3rd lap and no direction to others to keep left or right and allow faster runners through. 5k runners got the goody bags so none left for 10k runners!
