Catalina Island Eco-Marathon

By running this challenging November marathon (or the abbreviated 10K course), you are helping support the Catalina Island Conservancy. Your reward is the chance to enjoy the breathtaking view of canyons, rails, reservoirs, buffalo and bald eagles that make the California island worth preserving. Even better, all running gear is eco-friendly and water cups are corn-based and biodegradable.
