Monterey Bay Half Marathon
Race Course Technical Difficulty (RTDS) = 2
The Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay features a scenic, gently rolling, certified course beginning and ending near downtown Monterey, Calif., with an out-and-back section on Cannery Row, past the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and in beautiful Pacific Grove next to the breathtaking Monterey Bay and Pacific Ocean. The race fills each year at 9,000 participants and features a purse of $20,000 in prize money and bonuses, an efficient wave start, a fun post-race village, and bands and entertainment throughout the course. A two-day race expo features more than 60 vendors. The By the Bay 3K fun run and Pacific Grove Lighthouse 5K take place on Saturday, Nov. 7, the day before the half marathon. Come join us!
