Pacific Coast Trail Runs

Whether you're considering trail running for the first time or are an experienced ultra runner, we promise you a rewarding experience in a beautiful environment. We are recognized for spectacular courses, unsurpassed aid stations, well-marked trails, accurately measured distances, distinctive shirt designs, and friendly atmosphere – all at a reasonable price. While awards are given to the first female and male finishers, PCTR events are designed to encourage the enjoyment of trail running and emphasize personal achievement.


  • We are now offering a 15 km distance run during our Night Sweats on September 13. The race will start at Rodeo Beach at 8 p.m. Spaces are limited, please register today.

    Overall Headlands 100 mile winners:
    The overall male and female for the 100 mile event will receive a one-night stay in San Francisco at the award winning historic Chancellor Hotel in Union Square!

    Crewed Vs. Screwed Division
    We recognize the support that crew and pacers provide runners. They offer encouragement, emotional support and an occasional kick in the pants, if needed, to help you reach your goal. If you come to Headlands without crew or pacers, you aren't screwed! You’ll have experienced ultra-runners, world-class volunteers and medical assistance from the American Red Cross helping in the aid stations. However, we will acknowledge the first finisher without crew or pacer as the winner of the “Screwed Division."
