Come over, see the buffalo, the incredible vista’s and experience YOUR ultimate challenge on Catalina Island. Race weekend consists of two events- the 50 Mile Run and in it's 2nd year, the Avalon 50K. The Avalon 50K (31 miles) runs a good portion of the traditional 50 Mile Run but will not run the out and back to Two Harbors, instead turning south at Little Harbor Overlook and heading back through Ben Wesson, Eagles Nest and up Middle Ranch Road to the finish in Avalon. You will experience the same great views, the commradarie, the tradition and the excitement of the 50 Mile – but just a bit less of it. #RunCatalina

Why We Love It

Avalon, the only incorporated city on the island of Catalina Island, is home to beaches, restaurants, hotels and outdoor recreational fun. The island, most recognized for its unique and rocky terrain, was transformed into a tourist destination by William Wrigley Jr. (yes, the gum aficionado). Mostly controlled by the Catalina Island Conservatory to balance conservation, education and recreation, the island is known for its outdoor adventure, roaming buffalo, beautiful waterfront, amazing zip-line tours, and its famous glass-bottom submarine tours. Note: You'll have to take a ferry or helicopter to get here!
