About The Buzz Marathon

The Buzz Marathon is a highly anticipated event in the running community, known for its tranquility and unique course through the historic Camp Roberts Army National Guard Reservation. As a Boston Qualifier, this race attracts not only local runners but also those seeking to achieve their personal bests and qualify for the prestigious Boston Marathon.

The half marathon course, with its out-and-back design, offers stunning views of oak-studded hillsides, the Salinas and Nacimiento Rivers, and an abundance of Central Coast wildlife. Some even compare the course to a scenic trail run, adding an extra touch of adventure to the race.

Throughout the course, well-stocked aid stations provide runners with essential hydration and nutrition, including water, Gatorade, bananas, oranges, gels, and even Fritos and M&Ms on the return journey. These stations ensure that participants stay energized and fueled for the entire race.

In addition to the race, participants and their supporters can enjoy the Camp Roberts Open House and entertainment expo on the race day. This expo, sponsored by the MWR Program, offers a lively atmosphere with games, bounce houses, vendors, a DJ, and even a beer garden. It is a perfect opportunity for runners and their families to relax and celebrate their achievements.

As San Miguel is a popular weekend wine country destination, runners are advised to book their lodging early. The race coincides with the big 4H/FFA Western Bonanza at the nearby Midstate Fairgrounds, so accommodations tend to fill up quickly. For those seeking unique accommodation options, the Billeting Office on the base offers limited lodging.

Join us on February 17, 2024, for an unforgettable running experience at the Buzz Marathon.
