The Big Sur International Marathon is one of the world’s most beautiful races and is popular with not only runners, but journalists and photographers. 

Because of the strict traffic controls on race day, media wishing to cover the race must apply for a position on the press vehicle, or discuss other options with the PR/Communications team.

If you would like to be placed on the Big Sur Marathon Foundation’s media list for notifications and race-related information, or if you are a member of the media and would like to obtain credentials for our races, please contact Hillary Gibson, or call 831.625.6226.
