Honeybee Marathon

Trailhead: NEW this year - From Oracle Road, head north to Rancho Vistoso Boulevard which is past Catalina State Park and Tangerine Road. Turn left on Rancho Vistoso, go through the next light (Innovation Parkway), immediately cross over the "Big Wash" bridge, and make the next possible u-turn. The entrance to the dirt parking lot will be immediately on your right after the u-turn. Once making the right off Rancho Vistoso Blvd head down a steep, short hill and then take an immediate left down the dirt road. Here is a Google Map with the parking lot pinned: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GpDvVy0rYHUIf893b_62hycoYsVsvfIu&usp=sharing

Route: This new starting point will also extend the distances a bit to approximately 12, 22, and 28 mile "lollipops," each with 629, 1168, and 1534 feet of gain respectively. It's a pretty flat, friendly run, BUT there are NO trail markings out there, and we currently do not have plans to mark the course. You should download the Trail Run Project app to your phone in advance so you can see your current location on top of the trail. We will also provide paper maps.
