The Annual Humboldt Bay Marathon, Half Marathon, 5K and the Marina Mile Fun Run/Walk
The Humboldt Bay Area combines spectacular scenery with the perfect climate for year-round running.
Whether you are trying for a Boston qualifying time, striving for another personal record, or just looking for a uniquely beautiful place to run, the inaugural Humboldt Bay Marathon and Half Marathon are exactly what you're looking for.
For those seeking an easier pace, the family-friendly Marina Mile fun run is just the ticket.
The full marathon course provides a rare, scenic diverse tour around Humboldt Bay, and is considered to have some gently rolling hills over a generally level course.
Half Marathon Course
The half marathon will start near Near Klopp Lake at the south end of I Street in the Arcata Marsh and will merge with the marathon course as the course leaves Arcata into open dairy farms before heading down the west side of Humboldt Bay and into Eureka with spectacular views of Humboldt Bay and the Eureka Waterfront and Marina.
Marina Mile Course
The course for the Marina Mile will be on the Eureka Waterfront.
