Join us for the third annual PAL Big River Run and Walk in memory of Deputy Ricky Del Fiorentino. The course winds along one of the most scenic rivers on the north coast. The Big River 1/2 Marathon, 10K and 5K consist of a run along the scenic old logging haul road past groves of second-growth redwoods into the heart of the historic Big River Estuary. The flat and wide course meanders along the northern bank of Big River where runners will race out and back, retracing their steps at the turnaround points located 1.55, 3.1, and 6.55 miles out. The road is approximately 15 feet wide and maintained; it is commonly used by runners and bikers.
State-of-the-art chipped timing is provided by Synergy Race Timing, a California professional chip timing and disposable tag race timing company.
We are also providing Age grading for this year's race. Age Grading is a way of putting all race participants on a level playing field, regardless of age or gender. These results will be available after the race, as well as on our results page. You will be able to compare your race times to older and younger runners, as well as those of the opposite sex. We will not be awarding runners based on Age Grading this year.
