Humboldt Bay Marathon Off and Running!

Posted By on Sun, Aug 9, 2015 at 1:46 PM

Today marked the debut of the Humboldt Bay Marathon, the first such event to take place in the area since the early 1970s. Founded by local runner Rich Baker, the marathon kicked off in Eureka (with a half-marathon start in Arcata) and the finish for both involving music, snacks, awards and beer tasting courtesy of Lost Coast Brewery. Over 200 people registered for the inaugural run – and judging by the smiles under the sweat, considered the effort worthwhile.

We caught up with the racers as they made their way over the Samoa bridges.
