Race Information

The North Face Endurance Challenge is a series of trail running events that happen in locations across North America.

Located in the visually stunning Marin Headlands, The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship course engages runners with both scenic views and drastic elevation change. This unique running event happens over two days. Race distances are 50-mile, 50k, Marathon, Half Marathon, Marathon Relay, 10k and 5k. Let's not forget, there is also a kid's run each of the two days!

The course terrain combines fast-paced dirt trail with portions of technical single track overlooking the Pacific ocean. Runners should be ready for a series of dramatic elevation gains and losses. And to catch some spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge!

"As soon as you round the bend from the start (about 1 mile) you are embraced by sunrise coming through thin fog layer and it is too beautiful to just run through without taking a photo."

"We took off together for what was a really fun part of the race. We hit some switchbacks and ran like ants in a line, back and forth."
