Good morning Alcatraz – Running across the Golden Gate Bridge

A view of Alcatraz from the Golden Gate Bridge

During my visit to San Francisco, I went for an early morning run across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a fun way to visit the famous landmark and ended up being one of my favourite activities in San Francisco. It can be windy on the bridge but it’s a quick run (1.7 mile or 2.7 km one way). It’s a longer trip if you want to also visit Sausalito. Also, if you want to learn a lesson from my experience, check the ferry times back to San Francisco if you plan to take the ferry (but no worries if you forget, there is also a bus that takes you back to San Francisco). See more from my trip on San Francisco – “Tourist! No Leaning!”. More pictures from the run below.

San Francisco oozes style and character. These signs were painted across the pedestrian walkway of the Golden Gate Bridge.

If you plan to walk or run from the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, it is 5 km or 3.1 miles away.

Enjoy a quiet stroll in Sausalito.

  1. Beautiful pictures! Do you use a camera, or apps? Also, have you ever considered running the San Francisco Marathon? It loops through Mission, over the Golden Gate Bridge and back!

    • Thank you! These pictures were actually from my smartphone since I’m not coordinated enough to run with a camera. The San Francisco Marathon sounds fun and a great recommendation for all the runners out there. I think it would be a long while before I could ever run a marathon! Have you done it?
