Headlands 100K Endurance Run

Organiser's Description

$95 entry fee until June 30th, 2023. HELP PCTR GET TO 125 FINISHERS AT THE HEADLANDS 100K. Meeting this goal will allow for us to qualify for consideration to become a Western States 100M Endurance Run qualifier.
Pacific Coast Trail Runs, established in 2000,  presents the 16th annual Headlands Endurance Runs, featuring the 100K distance - a new era for Headlands ultrarunning. After 15 years of the Headlands Hundred Mile Endurance Runs (Marathon to 150 Mile distances) operating with superior safety protocol and no issues, one of our runners was aggressively taken down by a coyote around 3am during the event. Since the incident last summer, and numerous meetings with the National Park Service, they (NPS) have decided to not allow any "over night racing" again in the Marin Headlands, Muir Beach, Stinson Beach and the surrounding area that makes up the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We are now proud to produce the Headlands 100K in its place.
We will be offering the Rodeo Beach 50K and 30K Trail Runs on the same day. Rodeo Beach Trail Run will no longer happen in December as it had for years. You can register for the Rodeo Beach Trail Run here:
