Presidio Trail Run 2019
Presidio Trail Run 2019

GISSV students, parents, and teachers from our San Francisco and Mountain View campuses participated in the Presidio Trail Run.

Once again GISSV's active school community members spend time together and met for the Presidio Trail Run on Sunday. Kudos to the Mountain View families who drove up to participate and join the many San Francisco families.

Runners had a choice between the 1.5 mile course, the 5k, and the 10k, all winding through the beautiful Presidio.

It was a beautiful day and truly inspirational to see our youngest members finish the 1.5 mile and elementary school students growing in confidence as they ran the longer courses. Students, parents and staff members from our San Francisco campus as well as athletes from our Mountain View Cross Country team and their coach finished with great results!
