Course Reminders

Both the 5K and the 10K start on Old Mason Street across from Sports Basement. Runners make a left through the East Beach parking lot and then a left on the San Francisco Bay Trail which parallels the water. The turnaround is located just before Fort Point. Runners make their way back on the paved path next to Old Mason Street. 

5K runners will make a left to cut through Crissy Field and make their way to the finish, while 10K runners will continue straight for a second loop before finishing through Crissy Field just like the 5K’ers. This route is fast, flat, and scenic with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Alcatraz and more! For more information, please consult the course maps found later in this packet. 

For your safety, stay inside coned lanes when available, be alert to motorists and follow the rules of the road. Arrows, signs, law enforcement and volunteers will help you throughout the bike and run courses.

Aid Stations

Participants are encouraged to carry their own hydration along the course for this year’s SF Aloha Run for Solidarity. However, should a participant elect not to there will be one aid station location on course.

Keeping COVID-19 mitigation in mind the aid station will be self-served and will consist of 8oz water bottles. We ask that participants take advantage of all aid station tables and avoid crowding when possible.

Medical Area

The medical area is for participants only; family members are not allowed. Overcrowding in the medical area prevents the medical staff from doing their job. For information on an athlete receiving medical treatment, please wait outside the medical tent for updates on the athlete’s condition.
