German Tourist Club Run -- 7 or 18 miles

Please Read! New info added as of 2/26

More Big Sur Training (or whatever else you're training for)! This run will be approx 18 miles, includes beautiful rolling hills, Dipsea trail and great beer at the end. It looks like parking might be an issue; hopefully okay since we are parking before GTC opens. Carpooling would be a good option.  Park in the dirt GTC lot at 30 Ridge Ave.

During the run, we will most likely have different pace groups. I'm hoping that once you identify your pace, stick with that group. Notice who you are running with and be thoughtful at major turns or tricky trail changes and make sure the people in your pace group all make them together.

Drew created a map for us!

Here's the turn by turn.

18 miles with approx 3500 ft elevation. Start and end closer to the GTC. Come ready for an adventure and a beautiful trail.

Water at Pantoll and Stinson only.

Bring water, bring fuel and bring your map. Oh and enjoy!

New! 6-7-ish mile loop by request. See here

Bring lunch if you need refueling post run! GTC has limited selection of foods (cheese, pickles, jerkey, beer).

Bring cash! Last I recall, GTC doesn't take debit/credit cards.

fyi, We will start at parking lot and end at GTC - cars will be 0.25 mile up the steep (250' gain) driveway.

    Where the heck were you guys? I looked all over the place for you at the end and couldn't find you.

    And yes, Katie, thanks for organizing a great run. Next time could you put the water on the course. ;)

    This was a fantastic run, even with my tweaked R foot.The German Tourist club is a great place to end a run. The company made it even better. We should do this again. Thank you Katie for the organize and everyone for the stellar day. :)

    I'll be driving from Pacifica on the 1 (19th) through the city if anyone would like to carpool. . . So what is the direction of travel for the loop on the map?

    February 24, 2013

    • Dallas

      Hi Kendra. I'm sorry but I only have seat belts for two passengers.

      March 1, 2013

    • Dallas

      I guess I should clarify that they are already taken.

    This is sort of amazing, but...I got hit by a frisbee golf disc while I was out running the other day. Thing hit me straight on, direct hit to the ankle. Very swollen, still limping around, disappointed to miss beer run. And yes, just to recap, I'm bailing on a run because I got hit by a...frisbee. Sigh.

    March 1, 2013

    • Katie W.

      No way. What are the odds? Get better Nikki and we'll be sure to drink one for your frisbee attracting ankle.

      March 1, 2013

    • Eric

      Sorry to hear, Nikki. What are the odds...I'm going to sit this one out, too. My Achilles is bothering me and 18 miles is probably not the best for recovery. Have fun everyone!

  • Jessica K.

    I will run the 7 mile loop. Would love if others running this one would coordinate meeting and/or carpooling (I can drive or be passenger, would love to have beer though)! I live in SF, potrero hill. You can contact me at[masked]-6090. I know this post is last minute but hope to see you guys!

    March 1, 2013

  • Anat R.

    Is anyone running the shorter loop?

    February 27, 2013

    • Ryan S.

      This is my first run with you all - I am going for the 7 mile loop as well - looking forward to meeting everyone.

      March 1, 2013

    • Katie W.

      My friends who are running the 7 mile loop are starting around 10:30-ish so they can meet up with us at GTC.

  • Eric

    Any carpools departing from the Berkeley/Oakland area?

    February 27, 2013

    • Gladys G.

      Actually, that's way closer to me than commuting to sf. May I hitch a ride? Thanks!

      February 27, 2013

    • Anya

      I'd like to claim the last spot please!

    • Katie W.

      Bummer! I was looking forward to running with you again... I suppose Endurables will provide many more opportunities...

      February 26, 2013

  • Gladys G.

    Hi Katie! Do you have space in your car for one more. I think you offered a ride before but I didn't make it. Please let me know. I need to get moving!

    February 23, 2013

    • Katie W.

      Gladys, I'm catching a ride with now so i won't be driving.

      February 26, 2013

  • Katie W.

    Just made changes to the run info... please read. New maps, turn by turn direction and info about GTC.

    Can't wait to run with you all!

    February 26, 2013

  • Anna

    Hi Katie, I'd like to join your carpool if you still have space.

    January 27, 2013

    • Katie W.

      Space saved.

      January 28, 2013

    • Anna

      Hi Katie, I think I will go for a shorter taper run next weekend so don't need a ride anymore. Hope you have a great run and enjoy GTC!
