Near reservoir at Galewood Circle & Clarendon Avenue
Challenging 4 mile loop around Twin Peaks with spectacular views. Complete inside reservoir counter-clockwise loop; exit downhill onto Clarendon, left onto Laguna Honda and run uphill to Woodside Ave. Continue up Woodside Ave past the gas station. Run uphill/downhill on Twin Peaks Blvd then left and run uphill/downhill on Clarendon and finish inside reservoir.
Start/Finish at the north end Lake Merced Parking Lot (foot of Sunset Blvd). Run 3 clockwise loops around the lake staying entirely on jogging/pedestrian path. The 1st loop is cut shorter by crossing the “drawbridge” east to west at the southern end of the lake. There will be at least 1 aid station per 4.5 mile loop with Water/Nuun near the start/finish area. If you need water more often, please carry a water bottle to refill at each loop. There is also a water fountain in the parking lot near the picnic tables on John Muir Dr around 2.5 miles.
