There will be a post-run celebration at the picnic table area near the East Peak parking lot to include plenty of food and beverage.
Mt. Tamalpais park is open from 7 AM to sunset. There is no main entrance fee, but the East Peak parking lot has an $8.00 parking fee. Cash or check only. No change is given.
As always, South End relies on our volunteers, and we especially need volunteers for a race of this magnitude. Please signup to help run this event smoothly.
