09/23 Sunday Run Moved: Aim High 5k/5mile Event

We are moving the start location of Sunday’s run to the The Walt Disney Family Museum at 10AM sharp in the Presidio.
 
GGRC will be joining up with the Young Leaders Board of Aim High for a 5k/5mile free/donation optional event.

Aim High is California’s largest free summer learning program, reaching 2,300 low-income Bay Area middle school students annually. Summer learning loss is responsible for two-thirds of the achievement gap; Aim High solves the problem with a free, multi-year summer program that prepares, nurtures and inspires students to succeed in school and beyond.

  • The event is free. They are kindly asking for a $20 – $30 donation, and all proceeds will go to Aim High. 
    • To learn more about the event, the FB page is here.
    • To register / donate, click here.
    • Registration is not mandatory, just helps with headcount so they know how much water/snacks to provide.
  • We will be starting / ending in front of the Disney Museum
  • There will be a 5k and 5 mile option. If you want more miles, feel free to keep running after the event.
  • Regular GGRC post race Off The Grid to follow.

GGRC’s regular Sunday 10AM run at the Warming Hut (Crissy Field) on Feb-04 will be cancelled as we will be participating in our first target race of the year, the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon and 5k.

Regularly Scheduled Runs

Join GGRC weekly for the following regularly-scheduled runs:

Track
Wednesday @ 7pm | Kezar Stadium [ map ]

Join us for speed work! We meet halfway down the home stretch – or, at the East entrance of Kezar, when the track is closed.  Anyone can get faster and stronger through regular speed work, whether they are a novice or a former collegiate runner.  All workouts include a warm-up and cool-down.  Many runners meet for dinner and a drink after the cool-down.

Sunday Run
Sunday @ 10am | Warming Hut (Crissy Field) [ map ]

There are a variety of trail and road options available at Sunday Run.  You are likely to find GGRC’ers running distances ranging from 4-20 miles at paces ranging from 7-10 minute miles.  The club gathers between 10:00 and 10:10 to discuss routes and pace (including matching new runners with appropriate running buddies) and leaves the Warming Hut by 10:15.

Driving directions: Follow Marina Street past the Marina and bear right onto Mason Street as you continue to Crissy Field.  The Warming Hut is at the end of the road.

We welcome newbies – you do not need to be a member to join GGRC for a few runs to determine if the club is a good fit for your running needs.
