All races start/finish at East Beach and head West along the popular Golden Gate Promenade. The 5K event climbs up Battery East trail to the Golden Gate Bridge before heading back to the finish. The 10K and Half Marathon courses continue underneath the Golden Gate and follow the Coastal Trail to Baker Beach with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean along the way. The 10K turns around at the Baker Beach aid station while the Half Marathoners head through Seacliff and continue along Coastal Trail to the turnaround at Lands End overlooking the historic Sutro Baths.
