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:  To be announced by mid-June 2015

Registration for the 2016 Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge will be conducted as a lottery for 400 entrant slots.  The lottery will 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.    

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