You can take in the natural beauty of Humboldt County and let “people power” carry you to the finish line with cycling and running races. Local running clubs host a number of marathons and community runs throughout the year, and local cyclists gather for mountain bike and road races. No matter what your sport of choice might be, these races will lead you on paths through gorgeous countryside, dramatic coastlines and majestic redwoods.
A number of running and cycling events for different experience levels and athletic abilities take place throughout the year. If you’re not in any rush to race, set your own pace down any of the excellent trails available to mountain bikers, walkers and runners.
