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 training runs. If you are local your odds of getting in are pretty good, but for those that are not accepted, we have a great variety of alternative races around similar dates.

About the Coach
Levi is the long-haired, newly-bearded hippie ultrarunner, you may have seen handing out high fives on the trails all over Marin. Levi is the genius/madman behind Pinnacle Running, where he is committed to helping athletes like you run further, run faster, and get higher. (We are talking about elevation here. If you where thinking something else, you must have a different hippie in mind.)
Having run more trails, hiked more passes, and climbed more mountains than you can shake a stick at, Levi’s primary focus these days is to helping runners, such as yourself, overcome mental and physical barriers, take the guesswork out of training, and achieve amazing things by implementing a proven system that has produced results for hundreds of runners.
Levi loves all things Dipsea and is excited to be leading this amazing group of runners this year.
