B2B Logo 2014

Only the fittest (or craziest!) ever attempt back-to-back marathons...much less 3,000 miles apart. 2016 will mark the seventh presentation of the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge and we will welcome 400 of the world's fittest athletes to participate in two of the world's greatest marathons. 

NON-REFUNDABLE B2B ENTRY FEE (if selected in the drawing):  $260.00

Registration for the 2016 Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge will be conducted as a non-guaranteed random drawing for 400 entrant slots.  There is a $2.50 fee to enter the drawing.  The drawing is scheduled to begin on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 7:00 AM PDT and will close on Thursday, October 8 at 11:59 PM.*  Those selected will be announced on Monday, October 12 and those who did not get in will be notified as well.  
* Pending completion of Boston registration  

If you register for the open marathon via the July drawing and then are accepted as a winner for the  Boston 2 Big Sur drawing, we will cancel and refund your July registration.  Email sally@bsim.org if this is your situation.
