The Big Sur International Marathon is a boutique-style marathon and is considered a bucket list race for running enthusiasts around the world. Established in 1986, it attracts around 4,500 runners each year and has earned many accolades including “Best Destination Marathon in North America” by the Ultimate Guide to Marathons.  

The 26.2 mile challenging course takes place on Highway One, starting in Big Sur and ending in Carmel. It offers unparalleled scenery as runners wind through majestic redwoods and experience spectacular coastal views along the Pacific Ocean.  In addition to the visual grandeurs, runners are treated to musical interludes by Taiko drummers, Samba dancers and classical music from a grand pianist midway along the course. 

When you purchase a Marathon Tours & Travel’s package you are eligible to purchase a guaranteed entry!  Plan to join us in one of the most beautiful corners of the USA!
