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.

What Others Are Saying
There are options to run on the beach as well as trails up to the bridge if you want a longer, hillier challenge. Run in the morning when the wind is less fierce.
