ABOUT

Trinidad is located 285 miles north of San Francisco in Humboldt County, the heart of the Redwood Coast. A former whaling village, Trinidad is the smallest incorporated city in California. Spectacular scenery abounds; from rugged coastline, to pristine beaches and giant redwoods. Air transportation is available to Eureka - Arcata Airport by several major airlines.

The Trinidad to Clam Beach Run began as a winter training race for Humboldt State Track and Field runners. Over the years, it has evolved into a nationally known run, with a 3 mile and 5 ¾ mile run being added.

COURSES

The unique feature of the run is crossing the mouth of the Little River at Moonstone Beach. Thus, the date and start time of the race are determined by the height of the tide on either the last Saturday of January or the first Saturday of February.

The course varies from paved, level road to slight hills to packed wet sand with a river crossing in between. The Little River crossing is done at low tide to minimize the water depth but depending on the amount of recent rainfall, the water depth can vary. Ropes across the river assist runners as well as Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers stationed at the river. (see website for more COURSE information)

ELEVATION AND WEATHER

Course elevation is sea level to approximately 200 feet above sea level. Weather can vary greatly, from warm sunshine to cool and foggy to rain. Temperatures are usually 50-60's.
