The race starts and ends in the town of Stinson Beach. Most of the modified out-and-back course is on fire roads and single-track trails, with about two miles on roads. Runners climb approximately 12,000 feet (3,050 m).
The race begins at 5:00 A.M. The overall time limit for the race is 15 hours, 30 minutes.
The race, created by Kelly Sheehan and directed since 2002 by Tia Bodington, has been held every year since 1996, when it was known as the "What? Mi-Wok? Trail 100K", its name through 1999. The event was shortened to 60K for 2013 due to fire restriction trail closures in the Mount Tamalpais area. 300 to 400 runners have started the race each year since 2008. The course record (Rodeo Beach course) of 7 hours, 53 minutes, 19 seconds was set by Dave Mackey in 2008. The women's course record of 8 hours, 55 minutes, 49 seconds was set by Ann Trason in 2001.
