18627 Cull Canyon Rd

Castro Valley, CA 100K, 50 Miler, Marathon

This Event Took Place Sat. Oct 7, 2017

Welcome to Bay Ridge 100k and Dick Collins 50 mile

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.

Be prepared for any condition. Can be hot, perfect, or cold and raining. As was said of the race in years past, “previous years race week has included the following: fire, earthquake, flood, and stock market crash.”

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 the Sibley Visitor Center (pictured above!) The course still has an altitude profile of 7,800ft, which makes this race challenging but very runnable. 20 yards of pavement in the new course design!
