Starting just steps away from historic Fort Cronkhite, a preserved WWII mobilization post, and the dark sands of Rodeo Beach, this trail race is comprised of steep pitches and lofty downhill sections as it undulates the beautiful Marin Headlands hills and coastline. Coastal trail and Pirates cove provide astonishing views of the Pacific ocean, while glimpses of San Francisco and the Golden Gate bridge appear as you traverse the SCA Trail single-track. As part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the Marin Headlands is rich with wildlife, including foxes, coyotes, and bobcats, along with the more rare mountain lion sighting. With distances of 8K, Half Marathon, 30K, and 50K there is a race to challenge and appreciate all running abilities and a scenery that will make even the most curse-worthy climb more benign.
