Dear Running Community,
Who we are depends a great deal on the environments we call home and the habits we form within our day to day. A few years ago, I came up with a project that would disrupt those habits and in turn, ideally, help me better understand both my environment and myself.
In the fall of 2018, over the course of 47 consecutive days, I took to running Every Single Street of San Francisco. The 1300-mile journey gave me an entirely new perspective of the city I had called home for six years. I met people I never would have met, I visited parks I never would have seen, I ate at food trucks that I never would have crossed paths with. I gained a new understanding and appreciation for the vastness, diversity in culture, history and uniqueness of a truly incredible city.
The practice of running Every Single Street in San Francisco encouraged me to take on a nine-day tourist version in Mexico City and a slower (but perhaps more appropriately paced) version in my newly adopted city of Santa Fe, New Mexico. To my surprise and delight, this project has been adopted by hundreds of others around the world.
Now, I would like to bring it back home – back to San Francisco – and I want you to join me. With the help of Salomon, Run Local and several stores in the Bay, we are challenging you to experience the physical and [mental/intellectual/empathetical] of running (or walking or biking or rollerskating or wheel chairing) Every Single Street within a given area – and what better neighborhood than the iconic Telegraph Hill.
I hope you enjoy the project as much as I have.
Telegraph Hill maps, hand-drawn by Rickey, will be available on Global Running Day, June 2 and is also available to download and print.

Still want to participate in the challenge? Simple! Just do a 10-mile run where you live with the Every Single Street ethos in mind.
Prove it! Submit your entry beginning on June 2 and share it to social media using the hashtag #EverySingleStreet so others can see your local!
We will be giving away 500 wooden medallions* (okay, let’s just call them coasters) to the first 250 people that complete the challenge. The challenge begins on Global Running Day (June 2) and will run through the end of June.
* only available to US residents
