The twenty-seventh presentation of the Big Sur International Marathon will be held April 29, 2012. While the marathon is sold out there are a few other ways to participate in the event. The 10.6 miler and 9 miler courses are still open for registration along with the relay and 5K.
Both the 10.6 and the 9-Milers end at Marathon Village at Highway One and Rio Road. The 10.6 miler begins at the scenic Rocky Point Restaurant while the 9 miler loop course starts at Rio Road and meanders through stunning Point Lobos. Both events provide an awesome opportunity to walk along the famed Highway 1 with no road traffic and you'll even have the opportunity to witness the finish of the elite marathoners while you cross the finish line too!
