Welcome to Bay Ridge 100k and Dick Collins 50 mile

Be sure to check our website with the Blog and Updates sections at the top of the page, for updates and news.

Bay Ridge stands on the shoulders of giants. This race inherits the grand legacy of the Dick Collins Firetrails 50 and goes one step further with a challenging 100k. NEW IN 2018, we will be starting and finishing at Cull Canyon Regional Park. Just minutes from Lake Chabot, this new location adds a new single track section at the beginning and end of the races. The new parts of the course are challenging but offer stunning views from parts of the Bay Area Ridge Trail that most people rarely run.

We will not be running L'Petite Dick Collins Marathon in 2018.

The Courses

Two races make up the The Bay Ridge Endurance Runs: Bay Ridge 100k, and Dick Collins 50 mile. The course is an out-and-back course; mostly along the legendary East Bay Skyline National Trail; fireroads and single-track with gorgeous views of San Francisco and Mt. Diablo.

The Dick Collins 50 mile's new turn around is at Skyline Gate. The course has an altitude profile of slightly less than 7,500ft, which makes this race challenging but very runnable.

The Bay Ridge 100k follows the 2017 course to the turnaround at the Steam Trains. The altitude profile for the 100k is just under 9,000 ft.

Please check our website for maps and other course data under the Course tab. You will find information about drop bags and pacers under the Aid Station information.
