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 follow shortly with more details on the location and the addition of the marathon.
Three races make up the The Bay Ridge Endurance Runs: Bay Ridge 100k, Dick Collins 50 mile, L'Petite Dick Collins Marathon. For those not familiar with forefather, the Dick Collins Firetrails 50, 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. An altitude profile of 7,800ft makes this race challenging but very runnable. Three miles of pavement. 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."
The Bay Ridge 100k uses the Dick Collins course and adds to it an out-and-back along the Nimitz trail where you will have views into the San Pablo Bay. The course travels down the Conlon Trail to Alvarado staging area. The altitude profile for the 100k is just under 10,000 ft, meaning we should have a FAST race!
The new L'Petit Dick Collins Marathon is an out-and-back from Lake Chabot to Skyline Gate, following a course popular to local runners and often run during our Epiphany Run fat ass each January.
