This spectacular course near historic Murphy's, CA, offers a challenge for all ability levels.
Since 1998 our 1/2 Marathon trophies have been dedicated to Ernie Klann. Ernie started the first Hernia Hill 1/2 Marathon in 1988. We are proud to have been associated to continue "his" race.
All distances are beautifully scenic with hills and finish with a "dash" through the 'Wine Cave'.
5K - has one fun hill prior to the finish line
10K - Includes a dash up the finishing hill twice, so you get the punishment twice.
Half Marathon - utilizes Red Hill Road with a long and very pretty run through the California Hill'...beautiful and golden at this time of year.
