Saturday bridge run

THE LOGISTICS:
We'll meet at Macarthur Bart station at 10:30, run from there, then Bart back to SF for drinks/lunch.

THE RUN:
Nicole had the fun idea to run the new pedestrian path on the new span of the Bay Bridge!  Since the path does not yet connect to Treasure Island, it will be an out-and-back course.  Run the full length of the path for about 11 miles total, or turn around whenever you feel halfway done.  The elevation profile shows flat--from driving on the bridge, there seems more likely to be a gentle incline.  We'll find out together!

THE BAR:
To keep the Bart return trip short, we looked for a bar near Embarcadero or Montgomery.  It's a workweek-oriented area, so there were not a lot of choices open Saturday afternoon!  If it's sunny we can sit on the patio at Palomino (brunch menu link).  If not, we can save that and go to an Irish pub, Harringtons (menu link).

    MacArthur BART was very convenient. Chris, as always, was well prepared. Great crowd and dare I say even fun with the crazy elements! Definitely plan to attend more often.

    not exactly a runner, so is it possible to start somewhere closer to the bridge? for example, the Target with free parking

      You can start wherever you'd like but the group will start at the posted start. Generally our weekday runs are about 4 miles. Our weekend runs are 5.5 - 6.5 miles. Feel free to walk whatever amount you need to.
