WE ARE BACK FOR 2021 WITH A NEW DATE IN SEPTEMBER!
Although our event was cancelled for 2020, the Excelsior Running Club is proud to be back to present the 3rd Annual Star City San Bruno Mountain Half Marathon! Sure to become one of the top trail half marathons in the country, the race boasts spectacular views of the Pacific, Bay and San Francisco. We also offer a 5K Trail Race within the city of Brisbane. Both races will take place on Sunday, September 12, 2021.
The half marathon registration includes a t-shirt (if registered by 9/7/21), finishers medal, a pancake breakfast at Mission Blue Nursery! The 5K entry only includes a t-shirt (if registered by 9/7/21). A portion of your registration fee will go to support the San Mateo County Parks Department, environmental non-profit San Bruno Mountain Watch, and the El Camino High School XC team.
The race is 93% on trail, kicks in 2,400 ft of elevation fun, and has a screaming single track downhill section. Want to know the intimate details of your journey, check out our Course page.
Our race was dreamed up by runners who love the trails of San Bruno Mountain. We wanted to create an amazing running experience and then have participants enjoy breakfast while celebrating their accomplishment.
