Runners start the double-loop, out-and-back course for the Romancing the Island Half Marathon at the Ayala Cove picnic area, and from there head toward the road that circles the island. Shortly after they meet up with the road, they’ll jump onto the Sunset Trail, which they’ll follow as it winds its way through the forest westward, before meeting up with the fire road that will bring them back in the opposite direction. They’ll meet up again with the Sunset Trail and later the Northridge Trail, before heading back to the aid station at the half-way point. Then you’ll run it all again a second time to complete your 13.1 miles.
