Berkeley Half Marathon Mile-by-Mile Series: Mile Eleven
Mile eleven unfortunately puts an end to the leisurely cruise portion of the race, forcing you back to business – there’s going to be another mild climb to finish out the race, so make sure you’re hydrating and taking in energy. It’s too late to turn back now.
Keep heading North on Frontage Rd until you see the freeway overpass again, taking a right and therefore starting your upwards prance to the finish.
Scale the overpass and feel the burn as you head east on University Ave, taking a right on Sixth, then heading left up Allston Way. As you hit Allston there will be another water-stop manned by our absolutely lovely volunteers and event staff. Don’t be shy, they’ve got some high-quality H2O.
Head right on Seventh and that’s your eleventh: You’re truly almost there.
