Saturday, June 21, 2008 (Date Tentative)

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 the 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.


Start:    San Pedro Valley Park, Pacifica, CA.   Directions.

Course:   Travel through Eucalyptus trees and past Brooks Falls on your way to North Peak overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  The park is located in the northern spur of the Santa Cruz Mountains and features the only undisturbed Coastal Mountain Habitat found in over 100 miles of coastline.  (Distances are accurately measured using a Rolatape® surveyor's measuring wheel.)

                      9 Km -   1,230' 

                    21 Km -   2,930' 

                    30 Km -   4,160'

                    50 Km -   7,090'

                    (Elevation changes determined using an Avocet altimeter.) 

Weather:  Pacifica


Packet Pick-Up:    7:30 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. at San Pedro Valley Park.

Time Limit:    There is an 9-hour time limit for the 50 km distance.

Aid Stations:   Fully-stocked aid stations every 9 - 11 kilometers.  You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, boiled potatoes & salt, water, and Conquest sports drink. If you would like to be sure that you have Clif product, SaltStick capsules, or any other specific item at the event, you should carry it with you. Additionally, it is highly recommended that runners carry at least 20 oz. of water between aid stations.  Photo

Post-run Picnic:  Soup and Chili!  Photo
