Avalon Benefit 50 Mile/50 K Run

CATALINA一 Run Catalina Island will host the Avalon Benefit 50 Mile/50 K run on Jan. 8, 2022. The race is the oldest ultra-trail run in California; 2022 marks 41 years for the 50 Mile and four years for the 50 K. Runners will start in Avalon and traverse the entire island before returning to the starting point.

The Avalon chapter raises money to give back to the Avalon community through scholarships, community projects, and individual special needs. The club meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. For more information on the club, contact Bernie Ramming at (310) 422-1406. Registration for the race ends on Jan. 7 at 7 p.m.; there is a $110 entry fee for the 50 Mile Run and a $95 fee for the 50K Run. For more information, see the Run Catalina Website at
