Registration for the 2014 Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge is SOLD OUT and the wait list is full.   

Only the fittest (or craziest!) ever attempt back-to-back marathons...much less 3,000 miles apart. 2014 will mark the Fifth 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. 

In 2014 we welcome back Dean Karnazes as the Official Host of the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge.  As someone who has run 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 days, Dean has some great advice for those running Boston and Big Sur only six days apart this year.  You can read about it HERE.

If you are registered for B2B, but were unable to register for Boston, you need to email sally@bsim.org and we will transfer your entry to the open Big Sur Marathon and refund you $80 for the extra cost of the B2B training shirt, finisher jacket and post-race party ticket. Your $150 Big Sur entry fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Challenge rules include:
  • To qualify for the challenge, you must also be an official entrant in the Boston Marathon. You can register for Boston either through your qualifying time or through one of their charity programs.  B2B registration fees do not cover your Boston entry.
  • If you are registered for B2B and Boston, but do not start or finish at Boston, you are no longer eligible for the B2B Challenge.  If you wish to run Big Sur, we will switch you over to the open Big Sur Marathon.

In 2014 we will offer a "family package" for $15 per family member.  This will give family members the opportunity to join you in the B2B tent after the race, and includes refreshments.
