Catalina Island Half Marathon & 10K routes

Half Marathon:

This beautiful trail half marathon course starts runners in the city of Avalon and quickly climbs to over 1600 feet in elevation. Runners enjoy the expansive Catalina Island Conservancy Nature Preserve with its spectacular vistas while being challenged by the rugged terrain. They'll also have the special thrill of knowing they're in bison territory—the Conservancy man-ages a free-ranging herd of 150 of the majestic animals.

10K:

The 10K will begin in the middle of Avalon and then run through city streets, up and down hills, reach the outskirts of the city before heading to over 2.5 miles of trails just above the city landscape. You will run around Avalon’s most famous landmark: the Casino building, by the Wrigley’s house, turn around at the Wrigley Memorial and Gardens, and then on horse trails, past the golf course and back into town – finishing by the fountain, the landmark of downtown Avalon.
