Elite runners and newbie joggers have always flocked to San Francisco to get their training on — the city boasts some close-to-perfect conditions. We have totally tolerable weather (fog beats heat when you’re working out), a varied terrain that prevents boredom, and inspiring views that make you want to keep on truckin’.

Let's do this!
