Description: The Trinidad to Clam Beach Run began as a winter training race for Humboldt State Track and Field runners. Over the years, it has evolved into a nationally known run, with 3 mile, 5 3/4 mile, and 8 3/4 mile distances. The unique feature of the run is crossing the mouth of the Little River at Moonstone Beach. Thus, the date and start time of the race are determined by the height of the tide on either the last Saturday of January or the first Saturday of February. The Trinidad to Clam Beach Run is sponsored by the Greater Trinidad Chamber of Commerce. Profits from the Run support the Chamber's scholarship fund.
