ONLINE REGISTRATION TO BEGIN ON SATURDAY, MAY 1, 2004 FOR 2004 BIG SUR HALF MARATHON

April 29, 2004, Carmel, CA - Online registration for the 2004 Big Sur Half Marathon will begin on Saturday, May 1, 2004 at the website: www.bigsurhalfmarathon.org. The second annual Big Sur Half Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, October 17, 2004, offers 3000 participants the opportunity to run a scenic loop including Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, historic Cannery Row, and the spectacular Pacific Grove coastline. The race, which begins at 7:00 a.m., will also offer "chip" timing, with splits for the 5K, 10K and 10 mile. The course will be packed with live entertainment and there will be many well-stocked aid stations. In addition, there will be a two-day Health & Fitness Expo preceding the race, as well as a Pasta Dinner the evening before.

 

All proceeds from the event will be distributed to non-profit organizations throughout Monterey County and Big Sur. Over the past 18 years, more than $1.3 million has been distributed to local charities.  For more information, call the Big Sur International Marathon office at (831) 625-6226 or www.bsim.org.
