The running of the Big Sur Marathon is this Sunday, April 29th just a hop, skip, and a jump from our Monterey CA Bed and Breakfast! The Big Sur Marathon is considered by marathoners as one of the “Bucket List” races to complete during your running career, and has been named as the “Best Destination Marathon in North America”. Considered one of the top three marathons in the country (along with Boston and New York), Big Sur will host 4,500 runners in the 26.2 mile marathon (sold out year after year), and approximately 11,000 runners all told in the other weekend events which include a marathon relay, 21 miler, 10.6 miler, 9 miler, and a 5K. That’s a lot of people running up the coast by our Monterey Bay bed and breakfast next to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world! I am happy to say I will be one of the 4500 runners competing in the full marathon which begins by Pfeiffer State Park and ends the 26.2 mile jaunt in Carmel (pretty nice place to finish!). This will be my first Big Sur Marathon, and my eighth marathon overall. I am just as nervous every time, but I think I am ready! We would love to have you comecheer us on!
