4th Annual Urban City Walk

Saturday, October 27, 2018
9 am
- Registration opens

This is a 3 mile walk that starts at John O'Connell High School in the Mission, treks through Potrero Hill with a pause to enjoy the view at Starr King Elementary School, the site of one of Urban's afterschool enrichment programs, before returning to O'Connell for food, music, and fun!

Proceeds from the Urban Services City Walk benefit the thousands of youth and families who rely on our numerous community-based programs. Our comprehensive services encompass family support, youth development, mental health, and criminal justice programs that arm youth and families with holistic health and well-being.

Sign up for the walk or donate today!

Walk Route

We're walking rain or shine!

Start and end at John O'Connell High School

2355 Folsom (but meet in back off Harrison between 19th and 20th).

Route takes us through the Mission and Potrero Hill, including a water break and million dollar views at Starr King Elementary School, one of Urban's afterschool enrichment sites. 

NOTE:  the last few blocks to Starr King are steep. A shorter alternative route with gentler hills is available by turning north on Kansas and then veering onto Vermont until rejoining the route at 18th.

Walk Well

We are fortunate to have an amazing city to walk through with neighbors that are equally as amazing. This comes with great responsibility; it is up to us - the City Walk community - to make sure we take care of these neighborhoods. Please stay on course, take any trash with you, be respectful of others using the streets and be aware of your surroundings. 

In honor of Earth Day and our commitment to the environment, no disposable bottled water will be available. Bring your own water bottle, which you may refill at our water stations!

We also encourage walkers and celebrants to use public transportation.
