Acerca de Forest of Nisene Marks Marathon

A few hundred runners cross the finish line each year in all three races combined at the Forest of Nisene Marks Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K, which takes runners on a mix of roads and trails through redwood forests, with fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean helping keep conditions cool for participants along the course.

There’s plenty of shade under the canopy of trees throughout this race, which also is very hilly with challenging and steep terrain, especially at about the half-way point in the race, where the steep hill prompts many runners to walk just to get over.
