The oldest trail race in the US and its oldest trail runner

First run in 1905, The Dipsea is the oldest trail race in America. It is run every year on the second Sunday in June. The scenic 7.4 mile course from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful courses in the world. The stairs and steep trails make it a grueling and treacherous race. And its unique handicapping system has made winners of men and women of all ages. One of those winners was Jack Kirk who was at one time the oldest trail runner in the race with age 95. He completed 67 consecutive Dipsea contests en route and twice winning it. In 2007 Dipsea legend Jack Kirk died at the age of 100.
