Since 2002, the race has been held on the third Saturday of the month, with about 400 bicyclists competing in the The '''Dipsea Race''' is the oldest cross-country trail running event—and one of the oldest foot races (Running) of any kind—in the United States. 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 celebrated its 101st running on June 12, 2011. Since 1983, the race has been held on the second Sunday in June. The ''Light'' covers regional issues in and near West Marin, including the communities of Point Reyes Station (Point Reyes Station, California), Inverness (Inverness, California), Olema (Olema, California), Bolinas (Bolinas, California), Inverness Park (Inverness Park, California), Nicasio (Nicasio, California), Stinson Beach (Stinson Beach, California), the San Geronimo Valley, Tomales (Tomales, California), and the nearby Point Reyes National Seashore, as well as Fairfax (Fairfax, California) and Bodega Bay. Other media outlets serving this region include the community FM radio station KWMR and the ''West Marin Citizen'', a competing weekly newspaper, both located within a block of the ''Light'''s editorial offices in Point Reyes Station. 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''.

Stinson Beach, California

'''Stinson Beach''' is a census-designated place in Marin County (Marin County, California), California, on the west coast of the United States. Stinson Beach is located at an elevation of 26 feet (8 m). The population of the Stinson Beach CDP (census-designated place) was 632 at the 2010 census.

Stinson Beach is about a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on California's Highway 1 (California State Route 1). It is near important attractions such as Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach (Muir Beach, California), and Mount Tamalpais (Mount Tamalpais State Park). It has a long beach, where the cold water promotes fog throughout the year.

Stinson Beach is a popular day trip for people in the San Francisco Bay Area and for tourists visiting northern California. Although most visitors arrive by private car, Stinson Beach is linked to Marin City (Marin City, California) by a daily bus service, and the network of hiking trails around Mount Tamalpais also reaches the town. The beach is one of the cleanest in the state, and sandy, unlike the rockier neighboring beach in Bolinas.
