Michael Wardian going for 29-year-old course record at Catalina Island Marathon

Press release from American Trail Running Association member Spectrum Sports Management.

Renowned record-breaking marathoner and ultra-marathoner and NATHAN sports athlete Michael Wardian will run in the Catalina Island Marathon on Saturday, March 14, 2020, in Avalon, CA. Wardian will look to add to an impressive running resume, which includes world records for the fastest time for seven marathons on seven continents in seven days, fastest marathon and 50K on an indoor 200-meter track and fastest Leadville Trail 100 mile and Pike’s Peak marathon double.

Wardian will chase the 2:39:58 course record set in 1991 by Catalina Island Marathon legend Bill McDermott. The 43rd anniversary Catalina Marathon is an iconic bucket list race with rugged terrain, spectacular vistas, and more than 4,000 feet of elevation gain. The 29-year-old course record will prove to be challenging to beat, but Michael Wardian will have his opportunity to make history on March 14, 2020.
