When running over the bridge from the south, runners can look west and faintly see the Farallon Islands, a national wildlife refuge, now private , which is officially part of San Francisco. From this point on the bridge, the Islands are due East approximately 27 miles out.

There is so much to see running over the bridge. To the East runners can take in everything from Berkeley to Crissy Field,  a spectacular waterfront path with views of the Golden Gate Bridge, beautiful beaches, a cafe and bookstore, and historic fortress.

Berkeley, for those of you have not yet experienced our Half Marathon at Berkeley is another wonderful race we hold twice a year, with our next in November 2022! San Francisco new runners can take advantage of our dual SF and Berkeley challenges!
