About The Muir Woods Marathon
The Muir Woods Marathon in Stinson Beach, California is one of the most beautiful and challenging half marathons around. The 13th May 2023 race will be no exception.
Starting at Rodeo beach, runners will follow a course that takes them through some of the most stunning scenery California has to offer. From breathtaking coastal views to lush forests, this route offers something for everyone. There are plenty of hills as well as flat stretches so you can find your own pace and push yourself if you want! As you run through the famous Muir Woods National Monument, towering redwood trees provide an awe-inspiring backdrop that’s sure to give you extra motivation.
At this time of year temperatures tend to range from the low 50s (Fahrenheit) early in the morning when it starts to warm up into the mid 70s later on in the day so make sure you’re prepared with suitable clothing for both extremes! The races usually take place at a comfortable running temperature with very little wind or rain making it ideal for long distance running.
You won’t ever feel alone during your run either – crowds line up along much of route giving enthusiastic cheers and words of encouragement throughout your journey. Plus there’s also live music along certain parts which really helps keep spirits high during those last few miles!
The Muir Woods Marathon is definitely one event not to be missed; whether you’re looking for a challenge or just wanting some time out amongst nature – this race has something special for all levels of runner!
