Marathon of the Month – Big Sur Marathon

This month’s marathon is Big Sur. Set along the California Coast, the course gives runners incredible views of the Pacific Ocean and ancient Redwood forests. The Marathon takes place in April, and 2010 will be the 25th anniversary of the race. Although beautiful, the Big Sur Marathon is probably not a good option if you want to run fast – winning times are generally in the high 2:20′s to low 2:30′s range.
