10k Course Map
Participants are responsible for knowing the course map. The course will be clearly marked on race day, however all 10k participants should be aware they have to complete an additional loop out on the course. The 2nd Loop for the 10k course is a shorter loop that brings you around Crissy Field and back to Fort Point. After completing the 2nd Loop the 10k participants will stay on the Golden Gate Promenade and return to the Little Marina Green. <10k map>

5k Course Map
Participants are responsible for knowing the course map. The 5k loop turns around just after the Warming Hut, which is before Fort Point. After turning around participants will follow the water front and the Golden Gate Promenade back to the Little Marina Green. <5k map>

There is no parking at the Little Marina Green or along Yacht Rd. The start line is on Yacht Rd and it will be closed to cars in the morning.
