Am training for a half & i want to be somewhat meticulous about it (i.e. when i should be on a 6 mile run, i'd like to know a route before i just take off running. would also ideally like to have some routes with hills, etc). does anyone know a good resource for this?
Check out www.mapmyride.com/search. Hey Julie,
There's a very cool site called Map My Ride, which lets people, well, map their rides (and runs). On the search form you can change Route Type to Run and put in your location. There are more than 1,500 runs in SF and you can sort by distance to find 6 - 10 mile runs. My personal favorites are the GG Bridge from Sports Basement (~7 miles) and pretty much any run through the Presidio, Golden Gate Park (from Haight St to the ocean ~ 7 mile loop) or along Crissy Field. Good luck!
Roues & Trails. You can also check out the Routes & Trails on the Places page: http://www.wellsphere.com/placesSearch.s?b=37 You can customize what type of trail you are looking for, etc. Hope this helps!
