The race runs south-to-north from a maintenance area 1K south of Pfeiffer State Park, along Highway One, to Rio Road in Carmel.

There will be a strict 6-hour time limit on the race, since traffic will be reopened on Highway One following the 6-hour time period set aside by the state for the marathon. From the website:

Because of safety concerns, if a participant has not reached Mile 22 by the 5 hour mark (5 ½ hour mark for the 21-Miler), he/she will not be allowed to proceed past that point.
