Nearly 1100 people converged on Woodland this spring to run its flat, rural roads as it expanded its annual half-marathon into a full 26.2 mile marathon. The Blooms to Brews Marathon drew people from across the country, many hoping to use their time to qualify for a spot in the Boston Marathon. The event also featured a four-person marathon relay, half-marathon and 10K. Blooms to Brews 2015 benefits Woodland’s Scott Hill Park and Sports Complex. This is a planned park that will be built on land purchased by the City of Woodland in 2011. Currently plans for it includes lighted, tournament quality baseball, softball and soccer fields with spectator seating, multi-use fields, a walking trail with exercise stations, playground, covered picnic area, restrooms and a concession stand. Fundraising for the project is being spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Woodland.
