Big Sur International Marathon

Distanza Maratona

Data 28 apr 2019

Informazioni Big Sur International Marathon

The Big Sur International Marathon is an annual marathon held in California, USA along the Pacific coast. The marathon was established in 1986 and attracts about 4,500 participants annually.

For sheer natural beauty and dramatic coastal scenery, it’s pretty much impossible to top the Big Sur Marathon series of races, which hosts the annual Big Sur International Marathon in the spring on Monterey Bay.

The finish line for all events is the Crossroads Shopping Center in Carmel, California. The Marathon begins south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

Informazioni pratiche

Postazioni di Pronto Soccorso

There will be water (in cups or you can fill your own bottle at the BYOB Refill Stations) and Gatorade at all aid stations. There will be fruit at later stations. GU will be available at stations 5 (mile 12.2) and 9 (mile 18.7)

Medaglie

To be eligible for overall and divisional awards, one must show a time for all split timing mats located on the course. These will be near miles 5, 9.8, 13.15, 15.6, 17, 21.2 and 24.

Tempo massimo

6 hour time limit.

Cronometraggio

Bib chip timing is provided by South Valley Endurance. There will be split mats near miles 5, 9.8, 13.15, 15.6, 17, 21.2 and 24.

Trasporto

All participants are transported from one of several Monterey Peninsula locations to the start at Big Sur Station. Free bus transportation to the start is for official runners only. Each participant must show race bib number and bus ticket upon loading. Bus loading begins at 3:30 a.m. Why do the buses leave so early? It takes one hour for a bus to travel SAFELY to Big Sur along a narrow winding road in the dark. after unloading, it takes one hour for a bus to travel back to Carmel. All buses must be back to Carmel prior to 7:00 AM am so the Marathon finish and 5K/9-Miler start area can be constructed on the roadway. Therefore, allowing for possible delays, the final buses must leave for the start by 4:30 am. Because not all buses can leave at the last minute, bus departures are staggered between 3:30 and 4:30 am. The bottom line is that moving thousands of runners from multiple locations to several start destinations along a narrow, winding road in the dark TAKES TIME!
