Join us for our weekly long run 8:00 Saturday, August 21 at the new Sports Basement at Stonestown. Tomorrow is their grand opening!
SB has been a great partner to our club over the years, hosting our runs, our strength and stretching sessions with Angela, our RRCA coach certification clinic, even our Christmas party a couple of times!
I let them know we’ll be there, they sent along a lovely note of welcome, and are grateful for our support. I’m sure they’ll acknowledge our club.
We’ll meet at 8:00 as usual for our group run, another adventure designed by Patrick. They are holding a fun run at 10:00, and the doors open at 10:30. There’s even promise of food and drink!
Join us! Bring the family! Always nice to build our ties in the local running community.
This week’s adventure:
The course will bring us through the finest gems that Daly City/Broadmoor has to offer.
From Sports Basement, we will run along Lake Merced into Daly City. We run through Westlake Center and take the back route to get to the crown jewel of Broadmoor, Gilman Drive. We’ll make our way up to Westmoor Ave to reach Avalon Canyon. This will be the turn around point. On the return route, you can pontificate on such wonders like how Southgate Ave not only runs north-to-south, but also east-to-west twice. Run along 87th Street (what happened to the first 86 streets?) and experience deja vu as you run past Nimitz Drive only to find Nimitz Drive waiting for you again. And why did I make this route? You’re welcome.
Total Distance is 10mi (16km), with an elevation gain of 881 ft (268m)
