Challenge is born
New trails. New challenges. And a fast-paced dash over North America’s most iconic bridge.
Spartan Trail has teamed up with Pacific Coast Trail Runs & race host local Marin trail runner Dean Karnazes to forge an all-new adventure for the trail and ultra running communities: the Golden Gate Trail Classic.
This iconic event is a Blue Label race from the renowned Spartan Trail World Championship, the biggest Trail and Ultra Running Championship in the world.
Starting in the iconic city of San Francisco, you’ll travel across the Golden Gate Bridge at sunrise and venture into the fabled Marin Headlands, where spellbinding panoramas of the mountains and sea await.
