What type of transit are you taking? And where you are staying in SF? Cab and shuttle drivers should be aware of the event.

But it starts pretty early in the morning so should be out of the Union Square are quickly.

The race starts at 6:30AM on Sunday (Oct. 20th) and heads from Union Square toward Fisherman's Wharf, along the Embarcadero. Since you'll be heading in the opposite direction to the freeway, I don't think the race would affect you much.

As mentioned above, it would only interfere if you were trying to get to your hotel at Union Square, the Embarcadero or Fisherman's Wharf very first thing Sunday morning. Traffic around Union Square is generally clear by around 10 am, the Wharf a little later. If you're staying near Golden Gate Park it will be more of a problem until later in the afternoon.

And alternate routes should be available, as I don't believe the streets are completely closed except right at the Union Square starting line. If you have any concerns, ask your driver.
