Exclamation REMEMBER: AVOID 19th Avenue/Route 1

F.Y.I....things are coming together...for this Saturday's "Russian River Fun Run"
...a packet of printed color maps and revised directions/information will be given to you at the Vista Point Parking Lot, northeast side of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Kev and I expect to be there around 8:45 - 9:00 am. We will leave SHARP at 9:30 am, if everyone (that's on the list) is there before that time we could even leave a few minutes earlier.

So rise and shine on Saturday morning!
Be sure your gas tank is full the night before.


REMEMBER: AVOID 19th Avenue/Route 1

For those of you that will be going north from the south bay area & crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on Sat, June 19th..........There is a ramp closure of Hwy 1/Park Presidio Boulevard to Hwy 101/Doyle Drive starting Friday, June 18 at 10 p.m. through Saturday, June 19 at 11 a.m.

PLEASE allow enough time to meet at the VISTA POINT parking lot area northeast side of the bridge at 9:00 am.

View a printable advisory for this closure.

SUGGESTION: (AVOID route 1 or 19th Ave )
Take Highway 101 north to Golden Gate Bridge
to Van Ness Ave (101)
to Lombard Street (west 101)
to Doyle Drive (101)
to Golden Gate Bridge (101)
