Do you know of a nice 15k run starting at Town Square?

Hello. We are 2 couples that will be on a 9 day trip in late October. 3 nights in Sonoma about 1 block from the square, 4 nights in San Francisco and 3 nights in Vegas. We want to start our trip with a morning run starting near the square with a 15k goal distance. If it is worth a short drive, we could do that as well.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Contact the Sonoma Visitor's Bureau...(not the *county* bureau). they should be able to help you.

Not sure if you are looking for an "event" or just a run of your own but I found a website with all sorts of runs obstacle courses and races....

Hope you find something that suits.

A 15K or 10 mile loop is pretty easy to do in and around Sonoma Plaza, as it's mostly flat. However, you will be on city streets most of the time. I suggest staying on the east side of town, incorporating all or parts of the Sonoma City Bike Path, and/or heading up to the hills of Bartholomew Park's trails. Here's a link to a hike/bike guide that you can use to plan: sonomavalley.com/home/svvb/maps/svvb_hike_bi… Enjoy!

I love MapMyRun as a resource. They are usually runs from locals.

Thanks all... will use all of these suggestions to create our route. We are going to run along the Embarcadero in the city and hike the Valley of Fire in LV. Should be a good balance of: exercise, drink, eat, repeat... haha.
