    I ran the 10 mile event for the first time this year (was also my first Mermaid run) and I loved it! We got to watch the sunrise as we ran and the scenery was very beautiful. I found I enjoyed this race more than others that also go across the bridge (I think because of the shorter distance, many of the others that cross the bridge are half or full marathons). You start near Crissy Field, go up the Presidio hills, then down again by the fields and then back up the hill to the Golden Gate Bridge. You get to cross both sides of the bridge which was awesome and it was a clear sunny day (you could also see the mist surrounding the city and Marin from the bridge which looked gorgeous in the photos). After, you go down to Fort Point and then back down to Crissy field where you finish. I loved the shirt design, though wished the graphics had been on the front of the shirt instead of the back, though the medal was very nice and we got necklaces at the end too. Anyway, I really enjoyed this race and definitely want to run in a Mermaid series race again.

    Walked this with two friends while my daughter ran the 10K. Took a nice slow walk, accommodating a friend with a bad ankle. Will plan to do this race again next year. Maybe by then I’ll be running!

    this is an awesome event to participate in, whether you’re a runner, walker, veteran, 1st timer, adult, child or infant. there are 2 distances to choose from: 10k and 5k, and you can run or walk either of these courses.

    i ran the 5k in nov 2010, and i remember it being a great event. we also had terrific weather, a beautiful, clear, sunny day, to boot.

    the pros:
    -flat course in crissy fields with views of the golden gate bridge & bay
    -women only (absolutely no men allowed in this race)
    -kids only race (it’s really adorable watching the little girls race)
    -strollers and dogs allowed
    -easy parking in presidio/crissy fields (esp on sunday morning)

    what you get:
    *packet pick-up @ presidio sports basement the day before
    *overland shoulder bag & sf mermaid run women’s cut tshirt
    *silver finisher necklaces handed out as soon as you cross the finish line
    *lots of post-race food & drinks, including chocolate chip pancakes!!
    *cute mermaid branded merchandise for sale (adult, kids and babies’ clothing)

    the cons:
    a very long line of hungry women, waiting to get their hot pancakes and syrup 🙂

    this was a terrific event, well-organized and family friendly. if i still lived in sf, i would definitely participate again.

    No medal but a little pendant. It was confusing as I approached the finish line. Crowds of people standing around so I couldn’t see where to enter to get to the finish line. Needs more variety for snacks at the end of the race.
