National Geographic Recognizes Dipsea Race

The 7.4-mile race was named one of the "Ten Great Races in Amazing Places."

Dipsea, the 7.4-mile race from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach, was named one of the "Ten Great Races in Amazing Places" by National Geographic.

Dipsea's quirky and tough conidtions earned it a spot, along side Iron Horse Bicycle Classic in Colorado and Mont Tremblant Ironman in Quebec. Other race locations included Las Vegas, Australia, Hawaii, Chile, Switzerland and Guatamala.

National Geographic reports that in Dipsea:

"Runners negotiate some 676 stairs; mud-slicked, root-infested hills with fearsome names like Dynamite and Cardiac; and a sanctioned shortcut down a treacherous ravine dubbed Suicide."

Known as the oldest trail race in America, Dipsea began in 1905 and allows only 1,500 entrants.

The 2012 Dipsea Race will begin on June 10.
