Since 2012, Youth Dipsea Training Runs has been the most popular youth trail running program in Marin,  training youth runners ages 8-14, both first-time Dipsea runners and veteran runners, including many top finishers. We will again be carrying on the legacy in Spring 2018.

What is the Dipsea?

The Dipsea is a historic Marin trail race dating back to 1905. The race spans approximately 7 miles of steep terrain and single track trail beginning in downtown Mill Valley and finishing in Stinson Beach. Though there are a limited number of entries, and all runners may not be accepted, all are welcome to participate in the youth training runs. Find out more about the historic Dipsea Race at Dipsea.org.

When

Sunday Mornings
March 10th – June 9th

Where

Youth Training Runs begin Sunday, March 10th at 10 am at Ross Common.  Training runs will continue each Sunday at a different Marin trailhead until the Dipsea race on June 10th. Training will include a combination of long training runs and two trail races sponsored by Marin’s Tamalpa Runners Club. Each month will include 3 training runs and one race.
