About This Activity

OK, here is your Last Chance to run a 1/2 marathon or full marathon this year! The 1/2 marathon course is an out and back and the full marathon course is the same out and back course two times, starting at Fairhaven Park Pavillion, running the Interurban trail out to Clayton Beach for the full 13.1 miles or 26.2.

Course is subject to change if trail conditions mandate.

This trail has spectacular views and very few hills, just enough hills to make it interesting and break up the flat sections. FYI: We have been known to have SNOW this time of the year so plan accordingly. The majority of this trail is covered with a canopy of trees which deflects some of the rain or snow, but this also means it doesn’t heat as fast as an open course would. It can get cold. The majority of the trail is an old railroad bed, very easy to run on gravel surface, with the exception of Arroyo Park. Arroyo Park is 3/4 of a mile, double track trail with a few bridges and a few fun hills. It is a very well maintained set of trails.
