Purisima Creek will be my first 50k. My first long distance for that matter (No Marathon) Ive trained and Im ready but the extra loop after reaching the start/finish area has me worried. Does anybody have any advice on dealing with this? Seems like that last 5k loop is going to be gnarly!

It was a very enjoyable race - especially the PINK trail section!! Hats off to the very GREAT race directors. I got lost only because I REALLy wanted to run 32 miles plus >>>.?? Cindy Goh finished just behind me - & I was not trying to stay right behind her t o be competitive - but to 'tail' gate so I did not get LOST... Recommend this run for any one who wants a great day of fun trail running. Robert Sobsey

Hi, do you think the water is clean enough for swimming? I have been doing ice baths as an aid for recovery and thought a swim would be perfect after the run. S

no, first there's a long set of stairs at the start, and second, they are single track trails so you will be getting in the way of other runners and pose a risk not only to them, but also the race organizers, liability wise. baby strollers do not belong at races. if i were a baby, i'd hate to be dragged along on a bumpy nauseuos ride involuntarily.

Hi - subject says it all. I always run with the baby. Is this run suitable for that or not? I run the trails w/her in San Jose, but they're almost fire roads. Thanks.

Hi there fellow runners. I am a finnish student who is visiting San Fran. I am going to run Muir Beach 33K next Saturday. I wonder if there is someone who could give me a ride to Muir Beach from San Francisco/Berkeley. It is a little bit too long warm-up to run there ;). My e-mail address is jkokkoni (att) ulapland (dot) fi. Thanks, Jukka
