Big Sur International Marathon

Big Sur, CA
Considered one of the most scenic marathons in the country — and one of the most difficult — the Big Sur International Marathon gives athletes the rare opportunity to run 26.2 miles of coastline affording some of the most stunning views on the West Coast. One of the most famous sections of the course, a twisting, 2-mile climb followed by a lengthy descent, is known as Hurricane Point for the blustery winds through which runners struggle. With live music performed throughout the course, devoted and lively volunteers, and efficiencies borne of more than two decades of experience staging the run and its accompanying events, the Big Sur Marathon is so popular that it sells out almost every year.
