The run along Crissy Field from Fort Mason to Fort Point is one of the great urban runs of the world. Heading northwest, are views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Headlands, and Sausalito/Tiburon. The first part of the route uses the paved path/sidewalk around the Yacht Club, then joins a wide gravel pathway for the jaunt out to Fort Point. There’s the Fort Mason Visitor Center/warming hut at the 2.3 mile mark. At the 3 mile mark, touch the wall and turn around!
Ambitious runners can continue up to Golden Gate Bridge. Adds about 2.5 miles one-way depending on when you leave the Chrissy Field trails. A road leads up to the GG bridge at the Crissy Field Ave. & Mason St. intersection. You can also add to this run by running up and down some of the piers along the way, which feature wonderful views.
If you are starting from the Fisherman’s Wharf area, it is about 0.8 miles one-way from the end of Jefferson St. around the aquatic park and over Fort Mason, so a RT will add 1.6 miles. Video highlights of route, below.
