Marin County is a mecca for runners, and the half-marathon distance is considered by many to be an exciting and attainable goal for someone ready to stretch beyond the familiar 5K and 10K runs. The Sustainable Sports Foundation offers a great opportunity to experience a half-marathon in scenic Marin, alongside 5K and 10K courses.
Halfmarathon.net says the course is “both breathtakingly beautiful and filled with challenging uphill and downhill stretches (taking) runners on both a journey through the hills and among the mountains overlooking California’s San Pablo Bay and San Rafael, and an environmental one, as the race’s organizers seek to stage a running event that puts sustainability and renewable energy at its forefront.”
Consider making a full weekend of your Half Marathon run, with a stay in Novato, where nature-loving runners are guaranteed a warm welcome.
