Big Sur (Read 116 times)


Imminent Catastrophe

    Nah, not gonna do the wait list. It was really cool this year but since it's already full,, BTDT. The old system, where you couldn't register until you were confirmed in Boston, made sense. Too many things going on in late April.

    "The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

      1999 Big Sur was my first and still dumbest marathon.

       

      What?  Big Sur seems like a perfect choice for a first marathon.

        I'm sure it could be. That it was Big Sur was not the dumb part.

          I was being a little sarcastic.  Big Sur seems a bit hilly for a first marathon although looking at the topo chart maybe it's not as hilly as I thought.  I have not run it.
