GGRC’s Reopening and Covid-19

Golden Gate Running Club is open again! Per the City of San Francisco’s Coronavirus directives, GGRC qualifies as a low-contact outdoor adult recreational sport (defined by the State of California’s Department of Public Health), which is currently permitted following masking and social distancing guidelines provided by San Francisco

We are returning to track workouts on Wednesday evenings, and will shift back to our Sunday runs starting May 23. Members can sign-up to attend via GGRC’s internal slack channel for in-person workouts.

Please visit the Membership page for more information on changes to our typical member registration process and dues for the 2021 club year.
