The Big Sur International Marathon is a point-to-point course run on scenic CA Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel the last Sunday each April. Towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains and verdant pastures are featured on this bucket list course. The centerpiece of the course is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point of the race, where you’ll be greeted by a tuxedo-ed musician playing a Yamaha Baby Grand Piano.

Winner this year was Jordan Tropf, 27, raced more endurance events than many athletes complete in their entire lifetime: He took on the Ironman African Championships South Africa, the Boston Marathon, and the Big Sur Marathon, totaling 193 miles in competition—and ended up breaking the tape at Big Sur.
