Event Updates for 2016


New ending location! Please note and share.

As those who have attended the Walk before know, our regular finish line has been Justin Herman Plaza at the foot of Market Street. Due to the presence this year of the ‘Super Bowl City,’ which is under construction on the day of the Walk, we won’t be able to end at Justin Herman Plaza (though you’re most welcome to walk there from our ending location). Instead, the Walk will turn right on Fremont Street, four blocks before Justin Herman Plaza, and end at the intersection of Howard Street.

After the Walk ends, we invite Walkers to proceed 4 blocks east to Rincon Park on San Francisco’s waterfront. There you will be met by Mariachi Real de San Pablo, the Walk’s traditional mariachi band. Here you will be able to relax, meet up with friends, take group pictures and enjoy beautiful views of the Bay. There is a walking path along the waterfront from Rincon Park to the Ferry Building, where you can enjoy a number of food shops and other attractions, or even walk another mile to Pier 39 (Fisherman’s Wharf) and its attractions. For a quieter, more reflective time, proceed south on the Embarcadero along the walking path for beautiful views of the bay, the Bay Bridge, and Oakland.

This year’s ending location is midpoint between both the Embarcadero and Montgomery Street BART Stations, and close to most of our charter bus parking.
