1/1/21 – We still do not know whether the State of California and Marin County will be permitting in-person running events in the first half of 2021, due to the state’s surge in covid cases. We sure hope so, as we can’t wait to see you on the trails in May! We anticipate an update the 3rd week of January and will email everyone who signed up, and post the update here.
The Miwok 100K is one of the most beautiful and iconic trail ultramarathons in the world. The course is hilly (11,800 feet of gain) but runnable, with spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Mount Tamalpais, the ancient redwoods and the Point Reyes National Seashore.
The course features single-track trails and dirt roads with about a mile of paved road. The race is very competitive at the front, and a rewarding challenge for all. Less than an hour from San Francisco, the Start/Finish is in the town of beautiful Stinson Beach, nestled against Mount Tamalpais, with its excellent cafés, a small market, lodging, and more.
Course marking is excellent, and you’ll be supported by some of the best volunteers on a race course anywhere. We hire professional medical for all aid stations for those occasional skinned knees and such. Our 2021 runners will receive top quality Miwok logo gear, including men’s and women’s rabbit race shirts, a super-cool trucker hat, ultra-specific goodie bag items, and a custom Miwok finisher’s medal.
The Miwok 100K has focused on sustainability for over a decade, with recycling, food composting, and waste minimization. Runners bring their own cups/hydration system. Leftover food is donated to a local shelter.
We have runners from many states and countries, and many walks of life. Since June 2020, we have been working with a number of coaches and groups, including Coach Lisa Felder, the NBMA, BGR, and BMR, to further enhance diversity and inclusion at the Miwok 100K.
Since May 2008, we have donated to local organizations that help disadvantaged and hungry children, including The Edible Schoolyard Project, and EatLearnPlay.org, which provides food and support to kids in Oakland and the surrounding area, along with Pinkathon/Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and other local orgs.
Our thanks to the wonderful sponsors and vendors who are providing cool stuff and services for the 2020 Miwok 100K runners. More to come! We’d also like to thank the California State Parks, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Point Reyes National Seashore for their work to manage and maintain the trails we all love to run on!
This year, our donations go to EatLearnPlay.org, and the SF Pinkathon/Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
