The Coastal Marin 50K is not a competitive race, but rather an adventure run open to all long-distance trail runners. The course is non-technical and with moderately difficult climbs, and aid will be provided. It is perfect for first-time 50k runners looking for a supportive team-oriented event, as well as seasoned athletes looking to take a break from racing and hardcore training. Our route begins in Olema at the Bolinas Ridge trailhead, then heads south to Mt. Tam and on to San Francisco. The stunning course hits all the classic trails of the Bay Area in a gorgeous uninterrupted chain: Bolinas Ridge, Coastal, Matt Davis, Dipsea, and Miwok, ending with a triumphant crossing of the Golden Gate Bridge!
