SF Ferry Building to Tiburon Ferry! 20 miles

Come dressed in your favorite red, white and blue running clothes and lets head to Marin.  This will be all on pavement, but begins at the ferry building, goes through Chrissy Field, across the bridge, downhill to Sausalito, bike trail to Mill Valley and then follow a nice bike trail through Tiburon.  

Hopefully we will get to Tiburon around lunch time and we can drink and brunch on the deck at SAMs.  At some point we can hop on the Ferry and head home.

This is my birthday run.  33 Kilometers (because I can't do miles).  Will also have a few people trying to do the course on a bike...so if you want to do that let me know!

There are minor variations on the route, this one might be most logical but will defer to Kierstan.  Cutting straight across the Strawberry neighborhood will keep the distance to ~20 miles.

Ferry goes back to Pier 41/Fisherman's Wharf, so there will be a couple more miles to walk/jog back along Embarcadero to get back to the Ferry Bldg (aka leg stretch). 

Ferry Schedule (see Holiday).  Looks like 3:00 pm boat would work for those having leisurely lunch at Sam's.  For those skipping lunch and are reasonably fast, could make the 12:45 boat. http://www.blueandgoldfleet.com/ferry-services/ferry-schedules/

      For the record the beer pacing was: Boddington's, Boont Amber, Lagunitas IPA, then Racer 5.

    Happy Birthday Kierstan!! It's just too complicated to drive from Marin to the city, then get from Tiburon back to the city after hanging out. My dog Raven would not last that long. I'd want to hang out and he can't hold things that long. Dog sitter is gone. Have fun.

    Okay I am in! I'll be on the 8:19 train at West Oakland for Embarcadero arrival at 8:26 and a quick jog to the ferry building by 8:30 +/-. The first trains from Berkeley or Rockridge will get to Embarcadero "in 2nd place" at 8:32. Let us know if anyone is going with that option and we will wait :-) at the Ferry Bldg till you get there.
