Note: This is a classic 5K course that used to be raced a lot in San Francisco.
Since this is a loop, you can start anywhere along it, but it’s easiest to start at the corner of JFK Drive and Transverse Drive. From here, run down John F Kennedy Drive, passing Lloyd Lake, Spreckels Lake, the Equestrian Stadium (Polo Field), and Middle Lake. Turn sharply to the left to follow Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, then slightly left to follow Middle Drive West. Veer left to follow Overlook Drive, then turn left to return to your starting point.
