Course Map: Nike Women’s Half Marathon

The Nike Women’s Half Marathon San Francisco starts runners off in Union Square and finishes on Marina Green, basically reversing the route the race has used in the past few years. The newly designed course will still take runners past many of the familiar sights they’re used to — through Golden Gate Park, the Presidio, Crissy Field and the Golden Gate Bridge — including views of the Marin Headlands off in the distance, as runners make the turn between miles 11 and 12.
