 In order to streamline our efforts coming out of the pandemic, we will be hosting ONLY the 5 3/4 Race. The other two races (8 3/4 and 3 miles) will be back next year!  Great for all ages, you can sprint, run, or walk this gorgeous trail in the fresh clean Pacific air, and after the race, there will be a socially-distant party on the beach to celebrate your victory, along with a hot bowl of chili, music, and a bonfire!  

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, 5 3/4 and 8 3/4 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.
