57th Annual
Trinidad to Clam Beach Run 
Honoring Ford Hess

Sunday, Jan. 29th, 2023

Walk, Run and SPLASH!

Starting in the quaint town of Trinidad, CA,  the race begins on an undulating road lined with gorgeous redwoods, leading across the "Little River" at Moonstone Beach, and over the sand to reach the finish line at Clam Beach State Park.  There will be a party on the beach afterward to celebrate your victory, along with a hot bowl of chili, music and bon fire!  Great for all levels and ages!
