Runner’s World rates the Catalina Eco-Marathon as the Best Island Run,” because it travels through an otherworldly place where, the magazine notes, “you can see buffalo, bald eagles, seals and palm trees during a single run.” The Eco-Marathon course travels through three distinct ecosystems via trails and soft dirt roads. Runners traverse single-track trails, ridgelines, and vistas that afford views of the Pacific Ocean from both sides of the Island.
