Petaluma River Marathon and Half Marathon

  • Hosted By North Bay Rowing Club

Since 2004, the Petaluma River Marathon has served as the West Coast flat-water marathon/half marathon championship.
It is one of the most beautiful and fun races on the west coast. Participants have ranged in age from 13 to near 80, in
experience from ocean rowers, Olympians, and super paddlers to enthusiastic beginners, and joie de vivre as demonstrated
by two Frenchmen with a fully stocked picnic hamper aboard their canoe. 

After the race, we hold the traditional potluck lunch and awards ceremony, with those completing the full marathon receiving a laurel wreath - and a medal too if they've placed in their event.
