Event Date:April 30, 2023


Registration is NOW OPEN on a first-come, first-served basis. Why purchase a Youth Fitness entry? The Youth Fitness marathon entry fees support youth running opportunities in Monterey County. The Big Sur Marathon Foundation staff and committee members work year round to create and execute programs and races for youth of all and abilities and backgrounds. After a two year hiatus, the Foundation has launched a 2022 fall cross country season servicing thousands of area youth. To learn more about this XC course, visit palocoronatrails.org.

In addition to supporting youth running in Monterey County, when you sign up for a Youth Fitness entry, you’ll also get your name on our official donor wall displayed at the Expo and an exclusive Big Sur Marathon-branded hat from BOCO Gear. Visit the Big Sur Marathon Foundation booth at the Expo on race weekend to pick up your BOCO hat and take your picture in front of our donor wall!
