UPDATE: Due to on-going concerns/risk with COVID-19 we are unable to secure permits and will thus be cancelling the event. We will be refunding entry fees for all registered participants. If you have registered for the race, please stay tuned for an email update once we sort out the process.
The Excelsior Running Club is proud 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. In addition, we have a new 5K event.
The half marathon registration includes a t-shirt, finishers medal, a BBQ lunch from the Brisbane Lions Club, and a beer ticket that goes towards funding schools in Brisbane! The 5K entry only includes a t-shirt, though you can purchase lunch from the Lions and beer from the Brisbane Best PTO. Both races support funding for the after-race concert in the park! We’re a local running club, not a for profit racing company, so all of the revenue goes back to support the local community and runners like you!
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.
A portion of your registration fee will go to support the San Mateo County Parks Department, local environmental non-profit San Bruno Mountain Watch, the Brisbane Lions Club community projects, Brisbane schools and the El Camino High School XC team.
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 a great party to celebrate our accomplishment. As far as we know, no other trail half marathon provides the complete package like the Star City San Bruno Mountain Half Marathon!
