Run this endurance challenge across the Golden Gate Bridge in the Spartan Golden Gate Trail Classic Weekend. Choose from one of four distances taking place over the weekend along the rugged terrain of the beautiful San Francisco hills and across the city's iconic landmark.
On Saturday, the 100k and the 50k will start in Crissy Field, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge before circling the Marin Headlands to return across the bridge and back to the starting area. On Sunday, the Half Marathon and the 10k will start on the Marin Headlands, where they will both cross the Headlands and cross the bridge to finish in Crissy Field.
All routes will have a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge before they cross it, as well as passing through many of the trails available in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, like Rodeo Beach Costal Trailhead, Miwok Trail and Slackers Hill.
This race will be the first ever plant-fueled trail running event, plant-based foods at aid stations along the routes, and at the post-race food trucks at the start/finish area.
Route specifics are subject to change. Please check back to reconfirm course closer to the event date.
