About The Humboldt Redwoods Marathon
The Humboldt Redwoods Marathon, held on October 13, 2024, is an exhilarating half marathon race that takes place in the picturesque town of Weott, CA. As a passionate half marathon runner, I was immediately drawn to this event after discovering its unique and breathtaking course. The race is set within the stunning Humboldt Redwoods State Park, where towering old-growth redwood trees create a mesmerizing backdrop throughout the entire route. It’s truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be surrounded by such majestic giants while pushing my limits as a runner.
One of the highlights of this race is its certification by USATF, ensuring accuracy in distance and elevations. Moreover, the Humboldt Redwoods Marathon is a Boston qualifier, offering dedicated runners an opportunity to qualify for one of the world’s most prestigious races. Starting and finishing at the renowned Dyerville Bridge, participants are treated to a course that follows the iconic Avenue of the Giants Marathon route, allowing them to immerse themselves in the rich history and natural beauty of the region.
Weott, the hosting city, is a vibrant community known for its warm and friendly atmosphere. Fun fact: Weott is home to the world’s largest remaining old-growth redwood forest, a testament to its commitment to preserving nature’s marvels. The weather in October is usually pleasant, with cool temperatures that are perfect for running.
