Xterra Marin Headlands Trail Run

This half marathon mixes lots of tight singletrack with a little bit of dirt road and minimal pavement on a very challenging and hilly course. There are two aid stations and runners are advised to carry their own water. The trail runs along the cliffs above the ocean as well as throughout the beautiful Tennessee Valley, all within Golden Gate National Recreation Area. An awesome t-shirt, finisher medal, hot breakfast and coffee, and sweet raffle round out this unique race.

The 7k race covers the same trail as the first part of the 21k but turns around at the top of the first climb and heads down Miwok trail back to the finish line. This is a great climb with spectacular views.
