A graduate of Boalt Hall, the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, former judge Paul Seeman previously chaired the Alameda County Collaborative Juvenile Court. In his free time, Paul Seeman enjoys running and has completed the Dipsea Race multiple times.

The oldest trail race in the United States, the Dipsea Race began in Northern California in 1905. The competition takes runners on a challenging 7.5-mile course from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach. With stairs and steep trails, the race features a handicapping system to award runners of all ages.

The Dipsea Race is capped at 1,500 runners in order to protect the local environment and reduce the risk of participant injury on the steps. Although the competition attracts runners from all over the globe, local residents have a slight advantage in the selection process.

The 107th Annual Dipsea Race will take place on June 11, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. To learn more about the race, visit
