Marin Headlands Hundred is On!

Just got the news from Pacific Coast Trail Runs. Next to Bighorn this is now the next most important race in my schedule. So I'm missing Miwok 100k this year because of Wildflower Triathlon but gaining the Hundred. I sent a note to Wendell and Sarah about possibly designing the shirt for the race a month back. I didn't hear back so maybe they already have a design going or someone in line to do it. In any case I'm excited about finally having a 100 here in Marin. Only 15,000 feet of total elevation climb, generous 32 hour cut-off and an amazingly beautiful course that doesn't get too hot, what's not to like in this hundred. This run should attract a lot of runners, maybe even a lot of the first time 100-milers. It's so close to home maybe I can get a few folks from the Tri-Club to crew for me.

We are pleased (and very excited) to announce that the inaugural Headlands Hundred and associated 50 mile endurance run will be held in the beautiful Marin Headlands, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco.

Please visit: Headlands Hundred
for additional information.

We hope to see some of you this August.

Sincerely,
Wendell & Sarah

  1. This is the best news I've heard in a long time - I just wrote to Wendell and Sarah to thank them. Too bad I'm signed up for Vineman. It's definitely on my list for 2008, though.
