Crissy Field to Hopper's Hands

This is "The" classic San Francisco run. It is an out and back route along the San Francisco Bay. This uber-popular, flat route is great for doing speed work and for people watching. It continues to the far end of the Fort Point parking lot, where a fence stops you from going any further. On this fence you'll see a plaque with a pair of hands labeled "Hopper's Hands". Legend states that Hopper is a Golden Gate Bridge ironworker who noticed that runners were ritually tapping the fence as they turned around. He had a sign made with hands on it so people could slap the hands when they reached the end of the road.
