The Big Sur International Marathon is widely regarded as one of the most scenic races in America and it’s obvious why. From views of mountains and oceans, to redwoods and the iconic Bixby Bridge, the race organizers pull out all the stops to make every mile of this course memorable.
Yes, the course is known for being hilly. But as one runner put it, “What hills? You don't even realize it, since you’re so distracted by the views and happy energy everywhere.” And in addition to a wonderfully executed race, runners raved about the entire weekend experience, outstanding expo, and overall race-cation experience.
It’s understandable why Big Sur continues to sell out every year and why it’s made The BibRave 100 list for three years in a row. If you want to run the Big Sur International Marathon, better get your name into their lottery!
