Race Info

The La Sportiva Table Rock 10K & 27k is a true challenge for event experienced and novice mountain runners alike.  The race starts off with a bang, as you climb 2,000′ in just over 2 miles along the infamous Willow Camp hill. Soak in the views of the Pacific Ocean along the ridge-line and tight single track of the Coastal Trail. The 10K makes a breathtaking decent on the damp and twisting Matt Davis Trail. The 27K continues south towards the more exposed sections of Mt. Tam. Scream downhill along the Coast View Fire Road, then meander through the tight switchbacks of Heather Cutoff. After a quick break along Redwood Creek you’ll climb back up the mountain along the famous Dipsea Trail. At the top of Cardiac Hill you bomb back down to Stinson Beach, with incredible views – and harrowing steps – along the way. Bring the family and enjoy the best Marin has to offer.

    The Tablerock 25K was my first trail run and what a run. Cardic hill is aptly named and it was the warm up for the remainder of the run. Lots of single track challenges, particularly on the downhill sections. The second major climb, although more gradual at first, quickly became “the wall”. My quads, hamstrings, calves and glutes were burning bright!! Those Dipsey steps on the way down were as legendary as I’d heard. A real challenge for those of us with “older” knees.

    As beautiful as the scenery was–and it was fantastic! The best part of the run were the race organizers and the other entrants! What a nice group of people. As I was crawling up the first big descent, one runner–as she was passing me–asked if I needed water and offered me a drink from you camelback. I must have looked worse than I felt! Thanks to everyone! We’ll do this one again and are already looking ahead to Aug/Sept runs this year.
