The race, which began at 5:30 a.m. with staggered starts, will continue through Golden Gate Park, and then through the Haight, crossing Market Street at Guerrero, and continue through the Mission District, primarily on 16th Street, into Mission Bay.

The route next will go under Interstate 280 at Mariposa Street, then south on Indiana to 22nd Street, back along Third Street to Terry Francois and then back to The Embarcadero.
