The Course

The Superhero Run features an out-and-back course in the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park, a local gem known for its towering redwoods and beautifully maintained trails. All runs start under the oaks of Aptos Village Park, climb a short hill, and then head into the State Park, where the heat of summer will disappear in the dense patches of trees. All distances take place entirely on paved and dirt fire road.
