Run Your First 26.2 at Big Sur

The Big Sur International Marathon was the first marathon we ever sponsored back in 1997, so we’re giving away an entry to this sold-out race to someone who wants to race their first marathon.

Since this will be your first time racing 26.2 miles, we’ll be here to help with training tips and nutrition planning to make sure you have fun and feel good! (We’ll also stock you up with all the GUdies you’ll need during your training.)

The Big Sur International Marathon course is one of the most breathtaking marathon courses out there. If you’re going to run your first marathon, you might as well run it on the ragged edge of the Western world.

About the Race

Race Date is April 28, 2019

The Big Sur International Marathon is a point-to-point course run on scenic CA Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel the last Sunday each April. Towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains and verdant pastures are featured on this bucket list course. The centerpiece of the course is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point of the race, where you’ll be greeted by a tuxedo-ed musician playing a Yamaha Baby Grand Piano.
