WELCOME TO THE
BIG SUR INTERNATIONAL MARATHON
Reservations will open at 12 noon EDT on July 1, 2015.
The Big Sur International Marathon will be held on April 24, 2016. This boutique-style marathon is considered a “bucket list” race for running enthusiasts and it has earned many accolades including “Best Destination Marathon in North America” by the Ultimate Guide to Marathons. If you are looking to run on all seven continents, this is a great North America option!
This truly is an international marathon, with runners and spectators coming from all over the world to participate in this event, known as one of the top 3 marathons in the USA. From Big Sur to Carmel's Rio Road, runners wind through majestic redwoods and along Pacific Ocean, enjoying one of the most beautiful corners of the country.
The 26.2 mile course which takes place over Highway One offers unparalleled spectacular coastal views (like the one in the photo above crossing the Bixby Bridge).
In addition to the visual grandeurs, runners are also treated to musical interludes by Taiko drummers, Samba dancers and classical music from a grand piano midway along the course.
