Join Santa Rosa Marathon
The largest city in Northern California’s wine growing region opens up the pathways along its Santa Rosa Creek and Prince Memorial Greenway park areas for the Santa Rosa Marathon which marks its annual running in the late summer.
The Santa Rosa Marathon is a newly designed out and back course that starts in Juilliard Park in downtown Santa Rosa. The first 2 miles run through scenic Downtown Santa Rosa. Boston Qualified course that then continues along the scenic Prince Memorial Greenway. Mile 8 – 19 then goes through beautiful West Sonoma County and runs through De Loach Vineyards and even their barrel room!
Open to both runners and walkers, the race features plenty of sights that make for a memorable run, from the trestle bridges runners cross over the creek to the vineyards and farm fields filled with rows of corn along the race route.
Most of the race takes runners just west of the city’s downtown along the paved, natural surface and gravel pathways that parallel the meandering Santa Rosa Creek, much of which has undergone restoration efforts in recent years to reintroduce more natural environments and habitat for the native species of fish and birds that once thrived there, but had long since migrated elsewhere as the creekbed was paved over and became a haven for homeless encampments and vandals.
The primary goal of the Santa Rosa based True Grit Running is to promote and stage a quality, flat, fast, accurate, and festive half and full marathon to be enjoyed by our community, spectators, and all the participants, including walkers, recreational, beginner and competitive runners as they start and finish in picturesque Juilliard Park after looping the entire length of the scenic Santa Rosa Creek Greenway.
