To me, the area between Big Sur and Pacific Grove is the most beautiful area in the world. It will, more than likely, be the place I stage my mid life crisis. But, dear and gentle readers, you do not have to wait for that, as you can sign up for the Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterrey Bay. The BSIM.org team is one of the best in the country, so make sure you sign up for this one

              The Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay opens for registration on April 1.  The popular Half Marathon will be featuring its "10th Presentation" on Sunday, November 18, 2012.  A capped field of 9,000 runners typically sells out by mid-summer so race organizers are encouraging early sign ups.

               Taking place along the scenic waterfront of Monterey Bay in the communities of Monterey and Pacific Grove, the Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay draws a top field of elite runners from throughout the country.  The prize purse of $20,500 is the largest offered on the West Coast for a half marathon distance.  Runners typically travel from all 50 states and several foreign countries to compete in this destination race, recently named the Best Half Marathon by readers of Competitor Magazine in the January 2012 Pacific West issue.

               Early registration fees are $95 for the Half Marathon for the first two weeks. To register and for more information, go to www.bigsurhalfmarathon.org.  The Big Sur Half Marathon event contact is: [email protected] or 831-625-6226.
