    I decided to run this race at the last minute to see what kind of shape I was in. I really wanted an accurate course, so I felt like I was lucky to find a race that a) fit my schedule, b) was super close to home, and c) was USATF certified (ie, you know for a fact it’s exactly 5K).

    The race was super small (~120 finishers) and plenty well organized for a tiny local race. Parking in Golden Gate Park was super easy, and the flush toilets by the Conservatory of Flowers were open & just a short walk away. The course was a nice lollipop from the Conservatory to Stow Lake, looped around the lake, & back–no sharp turns & maybe just a couple of short hills. Finishers received a logo cotton T and a metal UCSF water bottle, which was nice.

    The race was chip timed, but there was only a finish mat & not a start mat, and my one complaint is that there must have been some other issue with the timing. I turned my stopwatch on when I crossed the start & off when I crossed the finish mat, but my official time was nearly a minute over that, which seems really strange. (I didn’t mind too much, though, since I knew the distance was accurate.)

    Definitely a good option if you live nearby and just want to run a reasonably fast 5K (or mile) and see what kind of shape you’re in.
