VISITORS & GUESTS
The San Francisco Road Runners Club runs are a member benefit. If you would like to take us on a Test Run before you join the SFRRC, please check our home page for the details on the next open run, typically held the first Saturday of every month.
Members are welcome to bring potential members to a regular Saturday group run. As their host, please help your guest get oriented to how the club works, find the correct pace group and provide them with a copy of the route if you will be running different distances or in different groups. Guest fees for supported long runs are $10 (please bring exact change).
Please remember to bring a water bottle. Given the size of our group,
headphones, strollers, and furry friends are not permitted.
If you're just here for a weekend, try one of our favorite routes. It starts/ends in Union Square and follows the Embarcadero along the San Francisco Bay, which has water fountains and bathrooms:
