“Runner's World” calls out the unique advantages of running in San Francisco, saying, “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to pack your favorite running shoes, because the city by the bay landed at the top of our chart. With its signature fog, cool summers, and rolling terrain, getting out the door is painless. And there’s no end of routes to explore. From Land’s End Coastal Trail, you can run about three miles to the famous Sutro Baths saltwater pools and more trails at Ocean Beach. End the route with a beer at the Park Chalet in Golden Gate Park. For great views of Alcatraz, run along the Embarcadero from AT&T Park to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge.”
