Located in the visually stunning Marin Headlands The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship course engages runners with both scenic views and drastic elevation change. The new course makes a long ascent out of Sausalito Marin City before making a long loop around Redwood Creek and heading north along Miwok Trail. Runners enjoy ascents through Tennessee Valley, Muir Beach and up to Pantoll Station. A long descent awaits the runners as they enjoy the views of the Pacific Ocean and drop down into Stinson Beach only to re-climb back up famous Dipsea trail. The Dipsea carries runners to the border of Muir Woods National Monument, down through Muir Wood and back to Muir Beach. After a few quick ascents, runners are first treated to dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge as they race off the Marin Headlands and then onto the iconic Golden Gate Bridge itself. A short but steep descent off the Golden Gate Bridge is the final push before arriving at the new historic airfield finish of Crissy Field.
