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 TAILWIND drink on the course, fantastic post-race food from M.H. Bread & Butter, a SALOMON tech-fabric race shirt and a 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.
Miwok is a lot of fun to run, and volunteering is also 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 2016 volunteers (8 hours) receive an extra ‘ticket’ into the 2017 Miwok entry drawing, and many volunteers will get into the 2017 race. Check out the Volunteers page on this website in October, 2016 and email Miwok100k@gmail.com to volunteer for the 2017 race, or go to the Miwok page at Ultrasignup.com starting in October and click on Volunteer in the lower right corner.
