Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay Opens Registration
(Carmel, CA – May 7, 2005) –Just less than two weeks after the end of the Big Sur Marathon on April 24 and the opening of registration for the Big Sur Half Marathon on Monterey Bay, 10 percent of available openings have already been filled 6 months before the event is to take place. The Half Marathon, which will take place on Sunday, November 6, will be the third presentation of the popular race which boasts a course that winds alongside the Monterey and Pacific Grove shoreline.
“Due to the popularity and very favorable response, we have increased the registration openings from 4,000 to 5,000 this year to accommodate more runners,” stated Wally Kastener, Race Director.
In additional to the half marathon will be the Bubba Gump’s Family Fun Run and 5k. Elite runners from the Big Sur International Marathon Distance Project will also be competing. Information on registration can be found on the website, www.bsim.org.
