Inspired by that sexy issue of Runner’s World magazine that featured Bernal Heights on the cover, the San Francisco Road Runners Club has decided to invade Bernalwood tomorrow evening, and you’re invited to join them. If you run, and you enjoy company, meet for the group run tomorrow, Wednesday Sept. 23 beginning at 6:30 pm at Precita Park Cafe.
Neighbor Aleks is a member of SFRRC, and she tells us:
The San Francisco Road Runners Club (SFRRC) will be doing a Bernal Heights Neighborhood Run on Wednesday, September 24th!
We would love to have fellow Bernal runners meet up with SFRRC to do a 6ish mile loop and learn about the running club (we are always looking for new members). The run will be a running tour of Bernal/Noe/Mission that begins at Precita Park Cafe, then goes up to and around Bernal Hill, down to Cortland, then to Holly Park, down Mission to La Leguna, down Church St through Noe to Mission Doloroes Park, then looping back to BH down Valencia to 24th to Harrison and back to Precita Park.
Confused? Don’t be – we will have detailed turn by turn running directions and a map available. It will be a hilly run (at least the first part), but we will keep the pace conversational and walking for parts of the uphill is ok. The run will begin at 6:30PM, followed by food and drinks (paid individually) at Precita Park Cafe after the run (around 7:30/7:45).
SFRRC is a not for profit organization that is part of the Road Runners Club of America. It is completely a volunteer run organization that welcomes runners of various abilities and provides awesome support, weekday runs, weekly long runs, training plans and coaching. It’s basically a group of super cool and laid back, but crazy folks who like to torture themselves by training for races of all distances (half/full marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, ultra marathons etc).
Here’s the link to the club’s website: http://www.sfrrc.org/ (the Bernal Heights run and PPC are mentioned under Upcoming Events). Also see below for recent club email announcement (remember the lovely photo from BH on the cover of Runner’s World a couple of months ago, which you tweeted about – see below – this is what set this Bernal Heights Neighborhood Run in motion).
