Posted Thursday September 24, 2009 by Jolynne

Map of Walk

This is no ordinary walk in the park!

The fifth annual Peak to Peak Walk is a 12 mile challenge that will inspire even the most avid walker. You’ll get a unique view of San Francisco’s skyline, stairways, paths, parks, and monuments—all while raising money for Walk San Francisco’s vital pedestrian safety and advocacy work.

Join us as we meander up and down along the spine of the city from Mt. Davidson to Coit Tower, with 15 different peaks along the way. In addition to dirt trails and stunning vistas, the walk also features a delicious gourmet lunch and the chance to win great prizes.

From climbing the slopes of Mt. Olympus in the morning to enjoying the view from Coit Tower in the afternoon, this full-day walk will give you a whole new perspective on San Francisco.

What does my registration include?

The walk will be fully guided, and you’ll receive a map of the route when you sign in. Each group leader will carry snacks and be in contact with other groups along the way. Around halfway through, we’ll take a relaxing break for a gourmet lunch in the Panhandle. Your registration also includes membership in Walk San Francisco for one year. We have some fabulous prizes including Sports Basement gift certificates, a one of a kind hoodie from Gama-Go, massage gift certificates, dinner at local restaurants and many others.

What will I need to bring?
You should wear comfortable shoes and bring clothing for variable weather conditions during the day, including fog, wind, and (we hope!) sunshine. We recommend a hat and backpack to carry water, light clothing, and snacks. Although rain in October is rare, heavy fog, wind, and mist in the morning are possible, especially on the higher summits.

 How should I prepare for the Peak to Peak?
Different groups will walk at different speeds, but all walkers should be relatively fit and capable of climbing and descending thousands of steps (yes, thousands!).
 
Sounds great! How do I register?
