Running for Charity


If you are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity and are interested in partnering with the Big Sur Marathon for their April 2018 events, we are now accepting applications. The number of pre-paid entries we'll be offering is limited to 350. The 2018 Charity Partner Application is now available to all interested charities; please note that there is a $350 application fee. All applications must be received by June 30, 2017. Questions? Email sally@bsim.org.

Interested in fund-raising for a charity? We offer many options to support worthy organizations throughout the country.  With a minimum donation of financial support (varies by charity), you'll receive a race entry to a Big Sur Marathon event and, in some cases, online training and/or other benefits from the charity.

Information on our 2018  Charity Partners will be available by July 15, 2017.

When considering the charity fundraising option, please keep in mind that it is unfair to commit if you have no real intention or realistic possibility of raising the agreed fundraising target. Don't be put off by the amount that has to be raised; fundraising isn't as difficult as you might expect, especially if you start early and get family and friends to help. If possible, look to a charity that has meaning for you, whether in memory of a family member, to support a friend, or because of your own personal experience.
