Route information

The 50 Mile run starts at 5am and traverses the island running from Avalon on one side, to the far side of the island at Two Harbors, turning around and running back!
The 50k Course will start at am and use the first and last part of the existing 50 Mile course that is so popular and you will see many of the same sights and views. The course will begin at Wrigley Stage in the middle of town and run to the pier, turn right on Catalina and then head up to Avalon Canyon and then follow the same course out through Airport road, past the Airport, through Rancho Escondido, out to Little Harbor Overlook. At the Overlook you will turn left and begin the run back to town via Ben Weston and Middle Ranch. The water stations will be set up and ready for you to come through and visit.
