Humboldt Redwoods Marathon Reviews
5.0 Stars from

Small, no frills race with the first half going out and back on the Avenue of Giants. Very scenic. Typically great marathon weather. Crowd support is sparse, you are in the middle of nowhere northern California. Only complaint is second half of the race the road you run on needs to be repaved - watch your step or you'll hit a pothole.
You are in the middle of nowhere. Seriously. Don't forget your GU or whatever nutrition you take; they won't have any to buy at packet pickup. Packet pickup is just that, here's your bib, here's your shirt, see you tomorrow.
