Big Sur Marathon Sells Out
CARMEL, Calif. - For the second year running, registration for the Big Sur International Marathon has sold out in record time, a full eight months before the 2014 event. The "bucket list" race, which opened registration on Monday, July 15, sold out in only 59 minutes.
Runners from 49 states and 25 countries quickly filled more than 3,000 'open' slots available for the April 27, 2014 marathon distance. The popular Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge has also sold out and the Runner's World Challenge VIP experience is picking up pace. A limited number of charity entries for the 26.2 mile distance remain open, and availability for concurrent races of varying distances along scenic Highway One including the 21-Miler, marathon relay, 9-Miler and 5K still exists. The popular 10.6-Miler has not yet opened for registration. Total registration numbers for all Sunday events exceed 10,000.
