The 7.5 mile (12 km) long Dipsea Race has been held annually almost every year since 1905, starting in Mill Valley (Mill Valley, California), and finishing at Stinson Beach (Stinson Beach, California), in Marin County (Marin County, California), California.

The ''Dipsea'' The ''Dipsea Race'', first run in 1905 over the 7.4 mile Dipsea Trail from Mill Valley (Mill Valley, California) to Stinson Beach (Stinson Beach, California), is the oldest cross country race in the United States. The race takes place on the second Sunday in June every year. The venue is considered by many to be the most beautiful cross-country course in the world, with stairs and steep trails that also make it both grueling and treacherous. Its unique handicapping system has produced both men and women winners of all ages. It is a very popular event, attracting runners from around the globe, but because of safety and environmental concerns, the field is limited to 1,500. Tamalpa club members routinely dominate the event, often taking home a majority of the coveted black t-shirts awarded to the top 35 finishers. 2011 ended a 34-year reign of the Dipsea's Team Trophy (given to the team with the most black shirts) to the Pelican Inn Runners. Original Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon The first Escape from Alcatraz was proposed by Joe Oakes after he participated in the 1979 Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii. The first Escape from Alcatraz race was held two years later in June 1981, with members of the Dolphin Club testing the course. The course started with a swim from Alcatraz Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay to the city of San Francisco, a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge to Mill Valley (Mill Valley, California) in Marin County, and an out-and-back running course over Mount Tamalpais to Stinson Beach (Stinson Beach, California) and back. The running course followed the course of the Dipsea foot race, but by making it an out-and-back run rather than a one-way course, became known as a ''Double Dipsea''.

What would otherwise be known as a Head of School at an equivalent British institution is known at Upper Canada College as the Head Steward (Upper Canada College Board of Stewards). The day of the performance comes, and everyone who attends is shocked to find out that not only has Terrance become morbidly obese, but Phillip is not with him. Instead, there is a stand-in who performs with him, much to everyone's dismay. The boys demand to know what happened between the two performers, and Terrance tells them that he and Phillip have disbanded due to creative problems. They are in fact arguing over who deserves most of the credit for their show. Terrance informs the boys that Phillip is currently in Toronto, performing Canadian Shakespeare (William Shakespeare), but with or without him, he is willing to perform. The boys tell everyone at the Earth Day show about this issue. The environmentalists become violently angry, as they have already heavily promoted the appearance. The boys are told to go to Canada immediately to convince Phillip to perform, or face the consequences. The foursome travel to Toronto to see his performance in ''Hamlet'', which they find exceptionally dull. They inform Phillip of the Earth Day show after the play ends, but he initially refuses when they mention Terrance will be in it. Kyle lies and tells Phillip that the people of South Park only want to see Phillip anyway, and not Terrance. This placates him and he agrees to come, but all four boys worry about what will happen when they both come across each other at the festival and begin to argue.
