Big Sur International Marathon: Half-Marathon

Featured-Bucket-Race-BS


Why?

I’ve only driven through the area and from the pictures of the course it seems like it will be an amazing experience. Like the Bellingham race, this one will go through a small town, has a brewery and a path along the water. If it only had a bridge to cross, it would be perfect!


When?

It is held during November of each year and would be easy to add to calendar. I would just need to convince Meghann to join me. This is one of those races where I want to enjoy the town a few days before the race.


How Awesome?

Ocean view, downtown AND brewery along the course? FUCK YEAH!

How Difficult?

With temperatures in the 50-60 range and elevation gain of 213 feet… this one is going to be rough.

Bellingham Bay Marathon: Half-Marathon

Featured-Bucket-Race-Bellin


Why?

My main draw to this race is being able to visit Meghann’s family. I loved the few days we spent this wonderful small town and course runs through all of the beautiful parts of the downtown and waterfront. Definitely would stop by Boundary Bay Brewery for a celebratory pint!


When?

Therein lies the problem. The race is held during September and it would be difficult for Meghann to get away from school during the first month.


How Awesome?

Having Meghann’s family cheer me on would be a definite plus. Also running through the small town and waterfront would be a sight to see.

How Difficult?

Not much elevation gains but it would be a bit cold.
