Voted "Best Half Marathon" in Competitor Magazines "best of" contest
In 2003, the Monterey Peninsula Herald deemed the inaugural event an "Immediate and overwhelming success!" The half marathon is a gently rolling fast course that winds through historic downtown Monterey, along Steinbeck's Cannery Row, and proceeds along Pacific Grove's coastline with incredible views of the Monterey Bay. Additionally it is an unparalleled race destination weekend with world-class golf and dining, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, wine tasting, several excellent Spas and more. Here's what some of our participants have to say...
Truly one of the best half-marathons I've done. It was worth it for the tech shirt, unique medal, and stunning course. I applaud you for a well-organized and spectacular race!
I had a wonderful time! You guys did an amazing job. 8,000 runners and we were treated as if we were all important. A fantastic experience! Thank you and your wonderful staff.
Wow! What an event! The Big Sur Half Marathon is by far the best I've ever experienced; seamlessly organized, fabulous music along the way, and grat refreshment to greet us at the end.
This was my fourth Big Sur Half and I continue to be impressed with the overall quality of the race organization and the volunteers...everything really. I have brought others to this race in years past and they in turn have brought others. I'll continue to sing your praises as I think you do an outstanding job with just about every aspect of this race adn I love the course/area in which it's held. Thanks for another great year.
