Welcome to Dick Collins Firetrails 2024! Stay up to date by checking out the Firetrails blog.
Welcome to the 41st Running of Dick Collins Firetrails!
Join us as we continue the tradition of Dick Collins Firetrails. When you step up to the start at Firetrails, you are stepping into history, one that winds back to when Dick Collins was the race director. Dick is a legend in these parts. He's remembered on a bench near the turnaround for the 50-mile race, in the camp below Skyline Gate
When you race here, you also stand on the shoulders of giants. Perhaps none are greater than those of course-record-holder Ann Trason, who directed this race for many years and who considered Dick Collins a mentor.
Dick Collins Firetrails is made of 4 events: Bay Ridge 100k, Firetrails 50, the Dinosaur Ridge 30k, and The Golden Hills Marathon.
UTMB: Dick Collins Firetrails races are UTMB Index races.
P-USATF Grand Prix: The Firetrails 50-mile race is part of the Pacific USATF Grand Prix.
The 2024 race willl be identical to the 2023 race for planning purposes. As we get through the winter storm season, we will look to make some changes, like removing the Redwood Road section of the course. Watch this space!
