Traffic Delayed On California Highway One
For Big Sur International Marathon

The 28th annual Big Sur International Marathon, a major sporting event on California’s Central Coast, necessitates the temporary closure of California Highway One for a half day on Sunday, April 28. Highway One traffic from north of and throughout the Monterey Peninsula will not be affected.

Thousands of runners and walkers from all 50 states and 35 countries will be heading north on a point-to-point course along Highway One from Big Sur toward the finish line at Rio Road in Carmel. During this time, vehicular traffic will be limited to convoys that travel in CHP-escorted caravans at designated times throughout the morning hours until 1 p.m. when the highway will be re-opened to through traffic.

Southbound traffic along Highway One in Big Sur will be restricted south of the Carmel Highlands beginning at 4 a.m. and northbound traffic will be closed from Big Sur at 6:00 a.m. Highway One will reopen at 1 p.m. For Monterey Peninsula residents and tourists needing to head south, CHP-escorted convoys will leave from the Crossroads Shopping Village at 9:45 a.m. and at 11:40 a.m. For Big Sur residents and travelers from the south, all cars must be north of the Big Sur Post Office by 6:15 a.m. Additional northbound convoys will leave from Pt. Sur at 10:50 a.m. and from Palo Colorado at 12:50 p.m. All times are approximate and subject to delays due to unforeseen circumstances.

Monterey Peninsula spectators wishing to enjoy the excitement of Sunday’s Big Sur Marathon can travel from Highway One onto Carmel Valley Road and south on Carmel Rancho Blvd. to nearby public parking areas. The finish line can be best viewed from the west (ocean) side of Highway One just south of Rio Road. Runners and spectators can also gather in the “Marathon Village” finishers’ area where a variety of participant service tents offering food, massage, medical treatment, awards and more will be located.

The Big Sur Marathon’s JUST RUN! Just Kids 3K taking place on Saturday morning, April 27, will also result in minor short-term street closures and delays in the city of Pacific Grove. The JUST RUN 3K for local school children and their families will take place along Ocean View Blvd. from Lovers Point to the Hopkins Marine Station beginning at 8 a.m. The street and recreation trail will be closed from 6 to 9 a.m. to accommodate the 3,500 children and adults registered for the race. The area surrounding Lovers Point Park will remain closed to vehicle traffic until after the post race festivities conclude at 11 a.m.

For questions on access and travel delays, please contact the Big Sur International Marathon office, 831-625-6226 or info@bsim.org.
