Event comments

Lake Merced one of San Francisco's natural lakes, once inhabited by the Ohlone and present location of Harding Park S.F.'s premier golf course. Rowing clubs from nearby schools practice on the lake. Those who opt for the 11K will climb rustic steps to reach the viewpoint for the Pacific and hang gliders. Popular place for owners to bring their dogs.
