Runners start the Golden Gate Half at the Muni Pier on San Francisco’s waterfront, near the Aquatic Park on Van Ness Avenue. From there, runners head west along Bay Street, Marina Boulevard and Mason Street on the way toward Lincoln Boulevard and the approaching roadway to the Golden Gate Bridge. Once on the bridge, runners follow the course all the way over to the other side at the Marin Headlands, and reach the turnaround point at North Vista Point.
