Welcome to the 21st Annual Miwok 100K!
• May 7, 2016 – 5:00 a.m. – Stinson Beach, California •The Miwok 100K is very hilly (approximately 11,800 feet of cumulative elevation gain) with spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, Mt. Tamalpais and the Point Reyes National Seashore. The course features fire roads and single-track trails with less than a mile of paved road. The race is very competitive at the front, and a rewarding challenge for all. There is fantastic post-race food, a tech-fabric race shirt and goodie bag with useful, ultra-specific items from our outstanding sponsors. Start/Finish is at the Stinson Beach Community Center nestled against Mount Tamalpais in the town of beautiful Stinson Beach, with its excellent cafés, a small market, lodging, and more.

VolunteersMiwok is a lot of fun to run, and volunteering at the race can also be a blast. You meet great people, help your community, and get food and some cool swag, too. It’s also a good way to learn about ultrarunning and improve your own performance by observing a lot of runners’ pacing and aid station strategies. All 2015 volunteers (8 hours) will receive an extra ‘ticket’ into the 2016 Miwok lottery, and many volunteers get into the following year’s race. Check out the Volunteers link to see what you can do and send me an email at Miwok100k@gmail.com. Gratitude to our 2015 Captains and Clubs:
