Catalina Island Marathon, 10K, 5K

Sat March 8, 2025 Avalon, CA 90704 US Directions


Run Catalina has been on the forefront on the sustainability of running for several years.   Our most successful initiative has been to reduce the waste of cups in the Interior by making all of our Run Catalina races Cupless.  In 2019 the Catalina Island Marathon applied for recognition as a  sustainable event through the Council for Responsible Sport.  Here are some of the initiatives that may be of interest and are important to recognize



Cupless - 

In cooperation with our host, Catalina Island Conservancy, the Catalina Island Marathon is a CUPLESS COURSE! For hydration, participants can purchase reusable soft-cup. Paricipants may also provide their own hydration system. Thank you for helping us reduce the footprint on the island!  You must have your own hydration system or purchase a reusable and collapsible cup from our store.  There will not be cups on the island to help.
