The next big distance events will be the Half Marathon in Sep- tember and the Eco Marathon in November. Managing these events in addition to the Conservancy is Spectrum Sports Management. Long-distance runners began gathering on Catalina in 1974 on the beach at Cherry Valley on the Island's West End. This is where ul- tra-marathons Hmas Albrecht, Bill McDermott and Joe Carlson came to train for the Western States 100 - one f the first 100-mile races. A few years later, in 1978, ac- cording to legend, Albrecht recalled the famous Four Prep's song "26 Miles" about Catalina, and thought it would be interesting if a runner could travel 26 miles to be able to run 26 miles. Thirty-nine runners were in that first marathon on Catalina.
