All runs starting at Aquatic Park at 8:00 am.

For those running Kaiser, the schedule calls for 6-8 miles, so we have a 6.8 miler and an 8.5 miler, just because! We also have a 5.6 miler.

Don’t forget, we start a new training cycle for the SF Marathon and Half Marathon starting on February 7!

Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy. We are looking for enthusiastic people who want to be positive role models and are committed to developing and celebrating youth.


Coaches are volunteers who work in teams of three to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants (girls in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade). Coaches co-lead practice for their team of 12-16 girls twice a week for 10 weeks, with each session lasting 75 minutes. You should anticipate a time commitment of 5 hours per week, with additional time required for coach training and the culminating Girls on the Run 5K.


  • Attend a full 1-day coach training before the start of program and a weekday evening mid-season meeting
  • Make time with your co-coaches to prepare ahead for each lesson in our curriculum
  • Model effective communication, problem-solving, and conflict negotiation skills
  • Facilitate each of the 20 lessons in an engaging and nurturing manner
  • Interact with parents as needed
  • Coordinate a group community service project
  • Attend the end-of-season Girls on the Run 5K with your team
  • Inspire and motivate others to believe in the Girls on the Run mission


  • Awareness of the developmental and social needs of girls
  • Experience working directly with youth (preferred, not mandatory)
  • Does not have to identify as a runner, though you must be willing to jump in and train for the 5k alongside the girls!
  • Men and women encouraged to apply

For those running Kaiser, it’s the last long run before a taper, so 14 miles. For everyone else, we have a 5.6 and 6.8 miler, (the same courses as last week).

A number of folks are running the Hot Chocolate race on Sunday, so I don’t expect quite as many to show for the Saturday run, but I will be there for the start on Saturday.

5.6 miler:

6.8 miler:

For those doing Kaiser, we suggested 12-14, so there’s a 12 miler and a 13.4 miler. Goal is a 2-mile warmup, 8-10 mi at goal race pace, then 2 mile cool down. And there are some hills!

We also have a 5.6 miler around Crissy field and a 6.8 miler to the bridge, to ease folks back into running after the holiday season.

See you all at Aquatic Park under the clock. Park in the lot at the end of Van Ness.

For CIM, we’re into the taper, with a 12 miler. We also have an almost-9-miler and a 6 mile option.

Supposed to be a 60+% chance of precipitation today between 8 and 10 am. It can’t be perfect all of the time!

See you all in the rain.

For those training for the CIM, it’s a down week, with 14 on the menu. So Jay threw in some scenic hills to change up the pace.

We also have 10 miler and a 6 miler, with both featuring the Sunset neighborhood. Usually busy, but these streets should be quiet first thing in the morning, like when we run through the Mission or the Haight.

Good luck to the 9 club members running the Berkeley Half on Sunday!
