The 26th annual Big Sur International Marathon will take place on Sunday. The 2012 edition, as in all previous years, will feature a 26-mile race that stretches along Highway One from Big Sur to Carmel. The official Big Sur International Marathon website has provided a helpful map of the marathon course.
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.
