Humboldt Bay Marathon Next Sunday

Cliff Berkowitz / Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017 @ 9:02 a.m. / Event

This morning it was my pleasure to talk with Rich Baker & Terri Vroman Little about the 3rd annual Humboldt Bay Marathon coming up the morning of Sunday April 13th. This is a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon, and one of the last before the event. Part of the event is on Old Arcata Road. There is an aid station near Ole Hansen Road where nearly 5 years ago Terri Vroman Little along with friends Jessica Hunt and Suzanne Seemann were deliberately run down in a hit and run that resulted in Seemann's death and severe injuries to both Vroman Little and Hunt.

Having the run past that infamous spot is a way of reclaiming for all runners. There is still time to sign up for the race or to volunteer. Go to HumboldtBayMarathon.com for more info.
