A limited number of premium race registrations for specific programs will be made available throughout the coming weeks. These include the Runner's World Challenge, a VIP experience for the race; the JUST RUN youth fitness program charity bibs; the Boston2Big Sur Challenge, and additional charity bibs benefiting a variety of non-profit groups in the U.S. and abroad.
Other events held during the marathon weekend, including the marathon relay, 21, 10.6 and 9-Milers, and the 5K, remain open for registration. Fill rates for the various events are posted on the marathon's home page at
The previous record of seven weeks for a Big Sur Marathon sellout was in 2002 following a designation of the Big Sur race as "The Best Marathon in North America" in the annual Ultimate Guide to Marathons.
The Big Sur International Marathon was most recently named as one of the country's top three marathons by the editors of Runner's World magazine. For more information, contact or 831-625-6226.
