In addition to assisting local charities, the Big Sur International Marathon and Half Marathon on Monterey Bay offer opportunities for additional charities to use our marathon and half marathon events as “goal races” to raise money for specific causes.

Big Sur's JUST RUN! Youth Fitness Program
The Big Sur Marathon is committed to promoting fitness and healthy lifestyles. For the past eight years, this organization has focused on, and has channeled funding into its nationally acclaimed youth fitness program, JUST RUN®. Promoting physical activity, pride, and good citizenship, JUST RUN has several educational components, as well. When registering for a Big Sur event, we invite you to make a tax deductible donation to JUST RUN. For more information on the JUST RUN program, contact Susan Love at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Running For A Reason
In addition to staging world-class running events, a major focus of the non-profit Big Sur International Marathon is "giving back" to the local community through grants and charitable contributions. Since its inception in 1986, the Marathon has donated nearly $3,000,000 to schools and community organizations in Monterey County. Each year, approximately 90 grants and awards are distributed from the proceeds of the Big Sur International Marathon. To see a list of grant recipients, click HERE.
