  • A 50 kilometer resolution run to kick the New Year off on the right foot 
  • A less extreme challenge (1K to 49K) for the more hung-over and those with resolutions they are not likely to keep.  A more extreme challenge (100K) if you'd like to go for Tim Wien's record
  • A refreshing post-run dip in the Pacific Ocean to blow away any cobwebs that remain
  • Out and back course through the most beautiful areas of the city
  • 60% trails, 25% bike paths, 15% sidewalks
  • 100 participants max. Please register early to avoid disappointment. Sorry, no event day registration! (Too hard to manage when hung over, and besides, the run will be full)
  • 21st anniversary!
