The Avalon 50 Benefit Run is an ultra race for the books. It’s the ultimate challenge of our Run Catalina events. As it is a benefit run, all donations to the Avalon Lions Club will significantly help charities on the island including eye sight check-ups, scholarships for graduating seniors, and other local Catalina organizations.

Race weekend consists of two events - the 50 Mile Run and the Avalon 50K (31 miles).
