Annoucement

We are back for 2022 with a new date in October!

Want to run an epic trail race with amazing views?

Then check out your next favorite race!

The Excelsior Running Club is proud to be back to present the 4th Annual Star City San Bruno Mountain Half Marathon! Sure to become one of the top trail half marathons in the country, the race boasts spectacular views of the Pacific, Bay and San Francisco. The race is 93% on trail, kicks in 2,400 ft of elevation fun, and has a screaming single track downhill section.

The half marathon registration includes a t-shirt (if registered by 10/15/22), finishers medal, and BBQ lunch from the Brisbane Lions at the Brisbane Community Park! Proceeds from both races help fund local community organizations!

Our race was dreamed up by runners who love the trails of San Bruno Mountain. We wanted to create an amazing running experience and then have participants enjoy lunch together while celebrating their accomplishments.

Start time

Our half marathon race starts at 9 AM.

Cut-off time

Our cut-off time is 1 PM (4 hours). Due to permit limitations for the park, we need to make sure that no runners are on the course after this time.

Aid stations

We have three aid stations for the half marathon run by volunteers at mile markers 3.2, 7.2, and 9.9. Each Aid Station will be well stocked with gels, water, and sport drinks. Note that WE ARE A CUPLESS RACE and recommend that every runner bring/carry their own water bottle.

Before you get your bib, you will need to read and sign a "Habitat Awareness" document, stating that you will not run off trail, and that you will be a courteous runner when someone wants to pass you. Failure to abide by these responsible trail requirements will result in disqualification..
