The 5K race is flat, fast and runs a loop on the Embarcadero along the beautiful San Francisco Bay. The start is just south of the Historic Ferry Building. The course heads south from the start with views of the Bay, Treasure Island and the Bay Bridge. At the base of the Bridge the course loops around and heads north with sights to see like the top of the Transamerica Building and Coit Tower nestled on top of the San Francisco hills. The course continues north just until you hit the edge of Fisherman’s Wharf where runners will turn back around and head for the finish line located just north of the Ferry Building.
