Big Sur is one of my favorite marathons I've ever ran. Imagine Highway 1, meandering along the unspoiled path carved by the Pacific Ocean; 26.2 miles of jagged rocky outcrops, pastoral plains and rolling hills carpeted with succulent flowers. If it were not for the dramatic bridges arching over the icy-blue, turbulent waters, you would think the place hadn't been touched by man. The 2 lane highway is usually a crawl, even if you're traveling by car -with 4.6 million visitors to Monterey county each year, Big Sur is on the top of the must-see list. Along with amazing scenery came some challenges -it’s very mountainous and tough! But the difficulty comes with great reward because to my mind, there is no course more beautiful.
During the marathon, the road is closed to traffic for 6 hours, which is a great incentive to finish the race quickly!
I would like to think all volunteers and organizers of the Big Sur event not to forget law enforcement who blocked traffic untill Marathon finished successfully.
The course is USATF certified and is an official Boston qualifier.
